The Double Tree


The Doubletree

If there’s a tree
That’s half in leaf
And half in flame—
And I believe there is,
In distant Wales, in everywhere—
Then I believe I have
In me the self-same seed.
I close my eyes
And lay my hand upon
The trembling room;
I shut my ears
And hear the roaring
Of the inward fire.
