First Line: Would that the powers that made my eyes so keen
Last Line: Before I knew their names by leaf or bark.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Twins


Would that the Powers that made my eyes so keen,
To stare at things intently, near or far;
That I discover twins at last, in what
I thought at first was but a single star –
Would that those Powers had made my ears the same,
To tell the Oak and Maple in the dark,
To recognize their songs in wind or rain,
Before I knew their names by leaf or bark.
