The Unicorn


While yet the morning star
Flamed in the sky
A Unicorn went mincing by,
Whiter by far than blossom of the thorn:
His silver horn
Glittered as he danced and pranced
Silver-pale in the silver-pale morn.

The folk that saw him, ran away.
Where he went, so gay, so fleet,
Star-like lilies at his feet
Flowered all day,
Liles, lilies in a throng,
And the wind made for him a song:

But he dared not stay
Over-long!
--Ella Young
