UNDERWOODS: BOOK 1: 31, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Sing clearlier, muse, or evermore be still
Last Line: One natural verse recapture -- then be still.
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour
Subject(s): Muses; Singing & Singers


SING clearlier, Muse, or evermore be still,
Sing truer or no longer sing!
No more the voice of melancholy Jaques
To wake a weeping echo in the hill;
But as the boy, the pirate of the spring,
From the green elm a living linnet takes,
One natural verse recapture -- then be still.
