This is the forest primeval…

“This is the forest primeval.
The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,

Bearded with moss, and in garments green,
indistinct in the twilight,

Stand like Druids of old,
with voices sad and prophetic,

Stand like harpers hoar,
with beards that rest on their bosoms.

Loud from its rocky caverns,
the deep-voiced neighboring ocean

Speaks, and in accents disconsolate
answers the wail of the forest.

This is the forest primeval;
but where are the hearts that beneath it

Leaped like the roe,
when he hears in the woodland the voice of the huntsman?”

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Quoted from the poem Evangeline, 1893)
