(12 February 1828 – 18 May 1909 / Portsmouth, England)

Poems of George Meredith

Dirge in Woods

A wind sways the pines,
And below
Not a breath of wild air;
Still as the mosses that glow
On the flooring and over the lines
Of the roots here and there.
The pine-tree drops its dead;
They are quiet, as under the sea.
Overhead, overhead

[Hata Bildir]
