ADDRESSED TO A BEECH TREE ..., by            
First Line: What taints thy shade - or doth the year decay?
Last Line: Or mourns the time delayed.
Subject(s): Beech Trees; Trees


Addressed to a Beech Tree, on observing that some of
its Leaves were tinged by the Smoke of a Fire that had been kindled under it

WHAT taints thy shade -- or doth the year decay?
Yet soon again -- thy tender leaf revives.
I too, in silence, to the grave go down;
But hope inspires -- that still a sweeter spring
Awaits new joys;
Sweeter than even these fields;
Where oft the Muse in plaintive notes
Invites the coming year,
Or mourns the time delayed.
