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

55. Dream-Forest


WHERE sunshine flecks the green, 
Through towering woods my way 
Goes winding all the day. 
  
Scant are the flowers that bloom 
Beneath the bosky screen         5
And cage of golden gloom. 
Few are the birds that call, 
Shrill-voiced and seldom seen. 
  
Where silence masters all, 
And light my footsteps fall,  10
The whispering runnels only 
With blazing noon confer; 
And comes no breeze to stir 
The tangled thickets lonely.
