The Loon
 
Lew Sarett
 
 
A LONELY lake, a lonely shore,
A lone pine leaning on the moon;
All night the water-beating wings
Of a solitary loon.
 
With mournful wail from dusk to dawn        5
He gibbered at the taunting stars,—
A hermit-soul gone raving mad,
And beating at his bars.

  American Forestry
