PORTRAIT SONNETS: 2, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: She must have lived so long with only trees
Last Line: Nor can she tell us what it was she found.
Subject(s): Solitude; Trees; Loneliness


She must have lived so long with only trees
For friends, and so have known at last too well
Some certain curious facts she could not tell
To anyone; for she found larger ease
With things that had no faces, and took these
To be a perfect sign of demon spell
That soon or late would break the even hell
Which seemed to be beyond this world's appease.

And now that she has lived a rapture there
Where none of us would venture -- now it seems
Almost as if a greater wisdom crowned
Her every day than favors even rare
Or final moments with its surest gleams;
Nor can she tell us what it was she found.
