A Poplar and the Moon

 There stood a Poplar, tall and straight; 
The fair, round Moon, uprisen late, 
Made the long shadow on the grass 
A ghostly bridge ’twixt heaven and me.
But May, with slumbrous nights, must pass; And blustering winds will strip the tree.
And I’ve no magic to express The moment of that loveliness; So from these words you’ll never guess The stars and lilies I could see.
