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

61. Companions


LEAVE not your bough, my slender song-bird sweet, 
But pipe me now your roundelay complete. 
  
Come, gentle breeze, and tarrying on your way, 
Whisper my trees what you have seen to-day. 
  
Stand, golden cloud, until my song be done,         5
(For he’s too proud) before the face of the sun. 
  
So one did sing, and the other breathed a story; 
Then both took wing, and the sun stepped forth in glory.
