Ode to the Beechen Woods of May

 
 Oh beechen woods of May –

Enchanted by night and restless by day,

Full of magic and bewitching fae,

What is it you whisper of today

Oh beechen woods of May?

Oh beechen woods of May –

What secrets do you keep at bay,

Beneath the dome of where I lay

And thought of all that I would say,

Oh beechen woods of May?

Oh beechen woods of May –

How many loves have you betrayed,

What whimsies have you seen decay

When all that was has gone away,

Oh beechen woods of May?

Oh beechen woods of May –

 If your ancient boughs could but relay

The wisdom in each dappled ray

Of light that shines on you each day

Oh beechen woods of May!

Oh beechen woods of May –

How I wish that I could stay

Beneath your canopy so gay

That knows nothing of dismay

Oh beechen woods of May!
