POEM OF THE DAY: Tall Trees Along the Road

by Lesbia Harford (1891 – 1927).

 

Tall Trees Along the Road

 

Tall trees along the road,

I never saw you

Last year in summertime.

He came before you

With his blue eyes.                                 5

Warm wind along the road,

I never knew you

Last year in summertime.

We could outdo you

With our hot sighs.                               10

This year, oh wind and trees,

We’re friends together.

Else should I be alone

In this sweet weather

Beneath fair skies.                                15
