Clinton Scollard
Sunset Trees

I see the sunset trees, line upon line on the sky;
I see the sunset trees, and they seem to be marching by;
I see the sunset trees, and I mind me of arméd men,
Men who will fade in the dusk, and will never come again.

I see the sunset trees, supple and strong and straight;
I see the sunset trees, like souls on the verge of fate;
I see the sunset trees, then darkness swallows them quite,
And I mind me of marching men lost in the battle-night.
