Tree and Windows

Tree at my window
Window Tree *)

Tree at my window, window tree,
My sash is lowered when night comes on;

But let there never be curtain drawn
Between you and me.

Vague dream-head lifted out of the ground,
And thing next most diffuse to cloud,

Not all your light tongues talking aloud
Could be profound.

But tree, I have seen you taken and tossed,
And if you have seen me when I slept,

You have seen me when I was taken and swept
And all but lost.

That day she put our heads together,
Fate had her imagination about her,

Your head so much concerned with outer,
Mine with inner, weather.

    What a perfect marriage of image and word M.

  4. Sounds very romantic that poem. I love those farmhouses. I would love to live in one. They are very beautiful.

    I agree, I don't much like curtains.

  7. How wonderfully you have illustrated this poem Merisi.

  8. So pretty and colouful. A view of trees is among the very best views one can have when one looks out a window.
