To a Mountain Pine
By Anne Spencer Twitchell
  O LONELY pine
Upon your granite cliff,
I know your pain—
Tossing your weird arms
To the mighty winds,        5
Beating your ragged breast
With shrunken hands.
I know your pain,
For I have stood
On such high, dawn-kissed peaks,        10
And flung my arms
And beat with futile hands,
Because I still was held
To stone and clod
By sullen roots        15
Of unremembered lives.
