Էջ 353 - What plant we in this apple tree ? * Buds, which the breath of summer days Shall lengthen into leafy sprays ; Boughs, where the thrush, with crimson breast, Shall haunt and sing and hide her nest ; We plant upon the sunny lea, A shadow for the noontide hour, A shelter from the summer shower, When we plant the apple tree.
