Excerpt: THERE'S a wind to-night in the apple-trees, // My father below has turned his keys, // But how up there shall I sleep at ease- // There's a wind to-night in the apple-trees? // Far off, beyond my half-shut doors // The clock ticks slowly, with never a pause. // In the darkness I hear the fluttering blind; // I will go to the window, what shall I find? // O, fearfully still is the moonlit ride // Where apple blossom falls like a tide: // But can that be a storm-blown shadow, see, // That moves like a robber from tree to tree? // I can see him too at the high road edge // There, where the blossom blows over the hedge! // What a snow of moonlit blossom! Hark! // There's a dog in the village beginning to bark. // While calmly beyond my half-shut doors // The clock ticks slowly with never a pause.
