|Chestnut Tree (Castanea Vesca)|
| When I see the chestnut letting|
All her lovely blossoms falter down, I think,
Alas the day!
Jean IngelowThe Warbling of Blackbirds.
|The chestnuts, lavish of their long-hid gold,|
To the faint Summer, beggared now and old,
Pour back the sunshine hoarded neath her favoring eye.
