Subject(s): Love; Trees


Harmonious trees, whose lit and lissom graces
For ever brighten on my hastening eye,
Calmed by whose leisure, by whose great griefs raptured,
I cared not if the word were live or die,

Oh that I might with kisses and caresses
Reveal that love to you, most lovely Powers,
And like the sun or trembling dew be welcome,
And see no winter to our green amours!

O could it but be held by these wood-wonders,
That time but gently, gently shine and sing!
Death first! And even in death this heart, dust-crumbled,
Will never give an aspen to the spring.
