Artist's Description


I’d watched the sorrow of the evening sky,
And smelt the sea, and earth, and the warm clover,
And heard the waves, and the seagull’s mocking cry
“.
  
And in them all was only the old cry,
That song they always sing—“The best is over!        
You may remember now, and think, and sigh,
O silly lover!”
And I was tired and sick that all was over,
And because I,
For all my thinking, never could recover        
One moment of the good hours that were over.
And I was sorry and sick, and wished to die
”.
  
Then from the sad west turning wearily,
I saw the pines against the white north sky,
Very beautiful, and still, and bending over       
Their sharp black heads against a quiet sky.
And there was peace in them; and I
Was happy, and forgot to play the lover,
And laughed, and did no longer wish to die;
Being glad of you, O pine-trees and the sky
!..Rupert Brooke
A pine forest always inspires reverence and the poet agrees…being glad of them he no longer wished to die…standing stately and still all winter long, they evoke the spires of a cathedral.."and there was peace in them".
