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

62. A Poplar and the Moon


THERE stood a Poplar, tall and straight; 
The fair, round Moon, uprisen late, 
Made the long shadow on the grass 
A ghostly bridge ’twixt heaven and me. 
  But May, with slumbrous nights, must pass;         5
  And blustering winds will strip the tree. 
And I’ve no magic to express 
The moment of that loveliness; 
So from these words you’ll never guess 
The stars and lilies I could see.  10
