WILD CHERRY TREE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Here be rural graces, sylvan places
Last Line: A long long sigh to the darling tree.
Alternate Author Name(s): Blunden, Edmund
Subject(s): Cherry Trees

HERE be rural graces, sylvan places,
Bright-hearted brooks that chanting fall,
Leys and fallows, reedy rustling shallows,
Colours and musics rustical.

O the silvery cherry, the visionary,
Templed in dewy dim green pleasance
Where moths flutter bloom-like -- who shall utter
The shining wonder of her presence?

Nor shall midnight veil her, hushed moon fail her,
Nor lack true lover then shall she;
Breathed from sleeping orchards afar shall come creeping
A long long sigh to the darling tree.
