A Forest Rendezvous
 
William Griffith
 
 
THEY said someone was waiting;
  And at the trysting oak
Sudden enchanting voices
  Leaf-lightly spoke.
 
Daylong she had been coming,        5
  And all the forest sang
Of beauty: elfin-softly
  The bluebells rang.
 
Nightlong she was in shadow,
  She who went away        10
As the moon does in the silver
  Veils of day.
 
I see no course to follow,
  Alas, nor where to find
The silver way she vanished,        15
  Being blind.

  The Smart Set
