THE WIND IN THE PINES

WHEN winds go organing through the pines
On hill and headland, darkly gleaming,
Meseems I hear sonorous lines
Of Iliads that the woods are dreaming.
 
OPPORTUNITY

BEHOLD a hag whom Life denies a kiss
        5
As he rides questward in knight-errant-wise;
Only when he hath passed her is it his
To know, too late, the Fairy in disguise.
