Spells 

by James Reeves

I dance and dance without any feet – 
This is the spell of the ripening wheat. 

With never a tongue I’ve a tale to tell – 
This is the meadow-grasses spell. 

I give you health without any fee – 
This is the spell of the apple tree. 

I rhyme and riddle without any book – 
This is the spell of the bubbling brook. 

Without my legs I run forever – 
This is the spell of the mighty river. 

I fall forever and not at all – 
This is the spell of the waterfall. 

Without a voice I roar aloud – 
This is the spell of the thunder cloud. 

No button or seam has my white coat – 
This is the spell of the leaping goat.
