Pear Tree



Silver dust

lifted from the earth,

higher than my arms can reach,

you have mounted.

O silver,

higher than my arms can reach

you front us with great mass;

no flower ever opened

so staunch a white leaf,

no flower ever parted silver

from such rare silver;

O white pear,

your flower-tufts,

thick on the branch,

bring summer and ripe fruits

in their purple hearts.
