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

64. Tree and Sky


LET my soul, a shining tree, 
Silver branches lift towards thee, 
Where on a hallowed winter’s night 
The clear-eyed angels may alight. 
  
And if there should be tempests in         5
My spirit, let them surge like din 
Of noble melodies at war; 
With fervour of such blades of triumph as are 
Flashed in white orisons of saints who go 
On shafts of glory to the ecstasies they know.  10
