Poem by William Morris


The Forest


 Pear-tree.

By woodmans edge I faint and fail;
By craftsmans edge I tell the tale.

Chestnut-tree.

High in the wood, high oer the hall,
Aloft I rise when low I fall.

Oak-tree.

Unmoved I stand what wind may blow.
Swift, swift before the wind I go.



William Morris
