That child become a willow tree,
His brother trees among.
Hed be four times as tall as me,
And live three times as long.”

Oft through the trees they catch a glance
Of passing troops in the suns beam
Pennon, and plume, and flashing lance!
Forth to the world those soldiers fare,
To life, to cities, and to war!”
—Matthew Arnold (18221888)
