THE ELM TREE:
A DREAM IN THE Woods.
BY THE EDITOR.
And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
As You LIKE IT.
'Twas in a shady Avenue,
And from a Tree
There came to me
And sometimes underground.
Amongst the leaves it seem'd to sigh,
Amid the boughs to moan;
the tone; As if beneath the dewy grass
The Dead began to groan.
No breeze there was to stir the leaves ;
No bolts that tempests launch,
No gale to bend the branch;
That stood so stiff and staunch.
