NIGHT AND DAY: 3, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Then spake I to the tree
Last Line: "desire will sing to you."
Subject(s): Trees; Desire

Then spake I to the tree,
" Were ye your own desire
What is it ye would be?"

Answered the tree to me,
" I am my own desire,
I am what I would be.

" If you were your desire
Would you lie under me,
And see me as you see?"

" I am my own desire
While I lie under you,
And that which I would be
Desire will sing to you."
