Mid My Gold-Brown Curls

'Mid my gold-brown curls
  There twined a silver hair:
  I plucked it idly out
  And scarcely knew 'twas there.
  Coiled in my velvet sleeve it lay
  And like a serpent hissed:
  "Me thou canst pluck & fling away,
  One hair is lightly missed;
  But how on that near day
  When all the wintry army muster in array?"
