The wind tapped like a tired man,
And like a host, ‘Come in,’
I boldly answered; entered then
My residence within
 
A rapid, footless guest,
To offer whom a chair
Were as impossible as hand
A sofa to the air.
 
No bone had he to bind him,
His speech was like the push
Of numerous humming-birds at once
From a superior bush.
 
His countenance a billow,
His fingers, if he pass,
Let go a music, as of tunes
Blown tremulous in glass.
 
He visited, still flitting;
Then, like a timid man,
Again he tapped– 't was flurriedly–
And I became alone.
