Subject(s): Flowers; Gardens & Gardening; Nature; Trees


BEFORE an inn hearth's tale-begetting flame,
Or sooth, or fable, yielded of the store
A white old man from perilous country bore,
I heard of a strange tree without a name
Whose shade the brinks of fuming gulfs did claim
And the precipitous torrents of that shore.
Beauteous and straight it was, and uniflore
With purest bud that e'er to blossom came.
