Second Growth
 
Winifred Welles
 
 
MEN know that the birch-tree always
  Will grow where they cut down the pine—
This is the way of the forest,
  And the same way shall be mine.
 
For now that my sorrow lies stricken,        5
  And shadow in me is done,
I, too, shall have years of laughter,
  And of dancing in the sun.

  Harper’s Magazine
