O DREAMY, GLOOMY, FRIENDLY TREES!, by             Poet's Biography
Last Line: Your darkness on its noise
Subject(s): Trees

O dreamy, gloomy, friendly Trees,
''aI came along your narrow track
To bring my gifts unto your knees
''aAnd gifts did you give back;

For when I brought this heart that burns''"
''aThese thoughts that bitterly repine''"
And laid them here among the ferns
''aAnd the hum of boughs divine,
Ye, vastest breathers of the air,

''aShook down with slow and mighty poise
Your coolness on the human care,
''aYour wonder on its toys,
Your greenness on the heart's despair,
''aYour darkness on its noise.
