Arthur Patchett Martin

(18 February 1851 – 15 February 1902 / Woolwich, Kent, England)

The Cynic Of The Woods

Come I from busy haunts of men,
With nature to commune,
Which you, it seems, observe, and then
Laugh out, like some buffoon.

You cease, and through the forest drear
I pace, with sense of awe;
When once again upon my ear
Breaks in your harsh guffaw.
