London Plane trees form a cathedral above the back streets of Bellerose

A London Plane Tree 
  
Amy Levy (186189) 
  
  
Green is the plane-tree in the square,  
  The other trees are brown;  
They droop and pine for country air;  
  The plane-tree loves the town.  
  
Here from my garret-pane, I mark          
  The plane-tree bud and blow,  
Shed her recuperative bark,  
  And spread her shade below.  
  
Among her branches, in and out,  
  The city breezes play;          
The dun fog wraps her round about;  
  Above, the smoke curls gray.  
  
Others the country take for choice,  
  And hold the town in scorn;  
But she has listened to the voice          
  On city breezes borne.

Amy Levy (186189)


Green is the plane-tree in the square,
The other trees are brown;
They droop and pine for country air;
The plane-tree loves the town.

Here from my garret-pane, I mark
The plane-tree bud and blow,
Shed her recuperative bark,
And spread her shade below.

Among her branches, in and out,
The city breezes play;
The dun fog wraps her round about;
Above, the smoke curls gray.

Others the country take for choice,
And hold the town in scorn;
But she has listened to the voice
On city breezes borne.
