Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  The Old Huntsman and Other Poems.  1918.

51. Dryads


WHEN meadows are grey with the morn 
  In the dusk of the woods it is night: 
The oak and the birch and the pine 
  War with the glimmer of light. 
  
Dryads brown as the leaf         5
  Move in the gloom of the glade; 
When meadows are grey with the morn 
  Dim night in the wood has delayed. 
  
The cocks that crow to the land 
  Are faint and hollow and shrill:  10
Dryads brown as the leaf 
  Whisper, and hide, and are still.
