Binsey Poplars
by Gerard Manley Hopkins
felled 1879
My aspens dear, whose airy cages quelled,
My aspens dear, whose airy cages quelled,
My aspens dear, whose airy cages quelled,

Quelled or quenched in leaves the leaping sun,
Quelled or quenched in leaves the leaping sun,
Quelled or quenched in leaves the leaping sun,

All felled, felled, are all felled;
All felled, felled, are all felled;
All felled, felled, are all felled;
