The Trees At Night by William Kerr









The Trees At Night

by William Kerr


Under vague silver moonlight

The trees are lovely and ghostly,

In the pale blue of the night

There are few stars to see.


The leaves are green still, but brown-blent:

They stir not, only known

By a poignant delicate scent

To the lonely moon blown.


The lonely lovely trees sigh

For summer spent and gone:

A few homing leaves drift by,

Poor souls bewildered and wan.
