THE lordly pines like grasses wave,"The Lordly Pines" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Poems (1916) Volume I.
And bend before the wind,
Content to compromise with Fate,
Security to find;
But when the storm's full wrath is spent—
Its futile passion o'er,
The pines majestic lift their heads,
As lordly as before!
