PEAR TREE, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Silver dust
Last Line: In their purple hearts.
Alternate Author Name(s): H. D.; Aldington, Richard, Mrs.
Subject(s): Bible; Pear Trees; Trees; Pears

lifted from the earth,
higher than my arms reach,
you have mounted,
O silver,
higher than my arms reach
you front us with great mass;
no flower ever opened
so staunch a white leaf,
no flower ever parted silver
from such rare silver;
O white pear,
your flower-tufts
thick on the branch
bring summer and ripe fruits
in their purple hearts.
