First Line: Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees
Last Line: Lord, who am I that they should stoop -- these holy folk of thine?
Alternate Author Name(s): Wilson, Charlotte
Subject(s): Animals; Religion; Trees; Theology


Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees,
The seven sister-poplars who go softly in a line;
And I think my heart is whiter for its parley with a star
That trembled out at nightfall and hung above the pine.

The call-note of a redbird from the cedars in the dusk
Woke his happy mate within me to an answer free and fine;
And a sudden angel beckoned from a column of blue smoke --
Lord, who am I that they should stoop -- these holy folk of thine?
