Heartwarming Classics

In court and field and cloak of white
the deer as loyal lords of flight,
shall kneel upon their pearl-white beds
and gently bow their brownish heads.

As birds beloved with soft-breast,
sing human songs from simple nest,
among the benches of thy birch
come midnight hymns from natures church -

While far above the wood and field
and shining meadows swept and sealed,
the feathered capes of soaring kings
protect the mice beneath their wings.
