YOUTH, by         Recitation     Poet's Biography
First Line: The dew is on the grasses, dear
Last Line: But nevermore the may!
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): Youth

The dew is on the grasses, dear,
The blush is on the rose,
And swift across our dial-youth,
A shifting shadow goes.

The primrose moments, lush with bliss,
Exhale and fade away,
Life may renew the Autumn time,
But nevermore the May!
