Reverie: The Orchard on the Slope
by Raymond Knister
1 Thin ridges of land unploughed
2 Along the tree-rows
3 Covered with long cream grasses
5 Brown sand between them,
6 Blue boughs above.
. . . . .
7 Row and row of waves ever
8 In the breaking;
9 Ever in arching and convulsed
11 Roll of muddy sea between;
12 Low clouds down-pressing
13 And pallid and streaming rain.
