Winds, trees and symphonies | Henry Wadsworth Longfellow



I hear the wind among the trees

Playing the celestial symphonies;

I see the branches downward bent,

Like keys of some great instrument.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)


This piece appeared in my 2017 New Year greetings post:

A host of twelve rhyming beauties green / For the months of two-thousand and seventeen
