Pine-Trees and the Sky: Evening
by Rupert Brooke

I'd watched the sorrow of the evening sky
And smelt the sea, and earth, and the warm clover
And heard the waves, and the seagull's mocking cry

And in them all was only the old cry
That song they always sing -- "The best is over
You may remember now, and think, and sigh
O silly lover!
And I was tired and sick that all was over
And because I
For all my thinking, never could recove
One moment of the good hours that were over
And I was sorry and sick, and wished to die

Then from the sad west turning wearily
I saw the pines against the white north sky
Very beautiful, and still, and bending ove
Their sharp black heads against a quiet sky
And there was peace in them; and
Was happy, and forgot to play the lover
And laughed, and did no longer wish to die
Being glad of you, O pine-trees and the sky

The Shepherd's Tree
by John Clare

Huge elm, with rifted trunk all notched and scarred,
Like to a warrior's destiny! I love
To stretch me often on thy shadowed sward,
And hear the laugh of summer leaves above;
Or on thy buttressed roots to sit, and lean
In careless attitude, and there reflect
On times and deeds and darings that have been -
Old castaways, now swallowed in neglect, -
While thou art towering in thy strength of heart,
Stirring the soul to vain imaginings
In which life's sordid being hath no part.
The wind of that eternal ditty sings,
Humming of future things, that burn the mind
To leave some fragment of itself behind.
