First Line: Poplar, straight and fair and tall
Last Line: That helen is away.
Subject(s): Wedding Song; Epithalamium


POPLAR, straight and fair and tall:
Graceful though your sway,
Well for your soft rise and fall
That Helen is away.

Bud, about whose fragrant side
All the pleasures play:
Rose, remember in your pride
That Helen is away.

Heart, whose hope she never knew:
Though other hearts be gay,
None need ever tell to you
That Helen is away.
