Poem by Sidney Lanier

The Palm and the Pine

From the German of Heine.

In the far North stands a Pine-tree, lone,
Upon a wintry height;
It sleeps: around it snows have thrown
A covering of white.

It dreams forever of a Palm
That, far iТ the Morning-land,
Stands silent in a most sad calm
Midst of the burning sand.

Sidney Lanier
