Shaking the high-towering pines and the mighty-limbed
Moaning through copses where never the sunlight an opening
Ruffling the rough-rushing torrents and scattering the
Of the leaf-laden air by the cliffs and the creeks that
'Neath the brown-yellow branches and shrivelling leaves
in the darkling day.

And curl round the crest of the wind-fetterd mountain
In their grey, gloomy folds, that loom heavy with threatening
All the thickets and forests that cover the rocks on
its echoing side.
