THE PLANET AND THE TREE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The evening breeze is blowing from the lea
Last Line: The expression of thy beauty there and here.


The evening breeze is blowing from the lea
Upon the fluttering elm; thou hast a mind,
O star! methinks, to settle in the tree -
But, ever baffled by the pettish wind,
Thou movest back and forward, and I find
A pastime for my thoughts in watching thee;
In thy vast orbit thou art rolling now,
And wottest not how to my human eye
Thou seemest flouted by a waving bough,
Serving my fancy's needs right pleasantly;
Thou wottest not - but He who made thee knows
Of all thy fair results both far and near,
Of all thine earthly, all thine heavenly shows -
The expression of thy beauty there and here.
