THE TOWN BEYOND THE TREES, by            
First Line: I stood within the quiet woodland ways
Last Line: Of murmurings from the town beyond the trees.


I STOOD within the quiet woodland ways,
Listening for Love's forgotten melodies.
I heard them not, for all the earth was filled
With murmurings from the town beyond the trees.

And so I prayed unto the bright-winged Lord
To send His music down the shining breeze,
That I might sing to those who toiled amidst
The murmurings of the town beyond the trees.

No answer came, for oh! I only brought
A heart half-haunted by Love's mysteries,
And all my ears were heavy with the sound
Of murmurings from the town beyond the trees.
