278. The Cedars
 
By Josephine Preston Peabody
 
 
ALL down the years the fragrance came,
The mingled fragrance, with a flame,
Of cedars breathing in the sun,
The cedar-trees of Lebanon.
 
O thirst of song in bitter air,        5
And hope, wing-hurt from iron care,
What balm of myrrh and honey, won
From far-off trees of Lebanon!
 
Not from these eyelids yet have I
Ever beheld that early sky.        10
Why do they call me through the sun?—
Even the trees of Lebanon?
