I robbed the Woods -
The trusting Woods -
The unsuspecting Trees
Brought out their Burs and mosses
My fantasy to please -
I scanned their trinkets curious -
I grasped - I bore away -
What will the solemn Hemlock -
What will the Oak tree say?
A Day! Help! Help!
Your prayers - Oh Passer by!
From such a common ball as this
Might date a Victory!
From marshallings as simple
The flags of nations swang.
Steady - my soul! What issues
Opon thine arrow hang!
