PINE-TREE KIN, by                    
First Line: Pine-tree
Last Line: As the wind passed by?
Subject(s): Pine Trees

Straight and high,
What did the wind say
Passing by?

Did it tell of a dwarf
Of far Japan,
A poor little brother,
Height but a span?

Did it sigh of a palm
On glaring sand,
That begs for water
In Somaliland?—

Or a fir ice-hung,
On vast, silent snow,
That stoops and shivers,
Where cruel gales blow?

Green and high,
What did you answer,
As the wind passed by?
