I have heard the sunset song of the birches

by
 "I have heard the sunset song of the birches,
A white melody in the silence,
I have seen a quarrel of the pines.
At nightfall The little grasses have rushed by me With the wind men.
These things have I lived," quoth the maniac, "Possessing only eyes and ears.
But you -- You don green spectacles before you look at roses.
"
