Thomas Humphry Ward, ed.  The English Poets.  1880–1918.
Vol. V. Browning to Rupert Brooke
 
Dirge in Woods
By George Meredith (1828–1909)
 
A WIND sways the pines,
            And below
Not a breath of wild air;
Still as the mosses that glow
On the flooring and over the lines        5
Of the roots here and there.
The pine-tree drops its dead;
They are quiet, as under the sea.
Overhead, overhead
Rushes life in a race,        10
As the clouds the clouds chase;
            And we go,
And we drop like the fruits of the tree,
            Even we,
            Even so.        15
