"Loveliest of Trees" by A. E. Housman is the Songs of Eretz Poem of the Day for Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014. It originally appeared in 1896 as part of Housman's first published poetry collection, A Shropshire Lad. It is, therefore, in the public domain and legally reprinted here.
Alfred Edward Housman (1859 - 1936) (pictured) was a Professor of Latin at Trinity College in Cambridge, England. He lived a reclusive life, shunning the fame that the popularity of his poetry might have brought him.
