THE LORDLY PINES, a poem

THE lordly pines like grasses wave,
     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!
"The Lordly Pines" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Poems (1916) Volume I.
