Lions have lain in grasses before
& pale hares in lonely lanes,
but the trees and the leaves
& the leaves and the trees
are choicer and much more fair.

Abandon then lions
ignore pale hares
for with the trees and the leaves
& the leaves and the trees
you’ve found your choicest fair
by far choicest and fair.

James Purdy
