Hickory and walnut, the thicket's mass,
Pennyroyal and sassafras;
And giant boles lift to a bluer sky
Near hidden waters running by,
Where great oaks hold the demesne in fee
And the wild grape swings out fitfully.
Wild plums climb up the bank's steep fall
To the creek's clear ford, and woodbirds call
With the woodland breath, loam-fresh, sun-sweet,
Thro' open glades to splashing feet.
