Last Line: In june or november, mid flowers or snow.
Subject(s): Love - Nature Of

IT silently fell in the gloom and the night,
And loaded the pines with a burden of white;
It wrapped with soft mantles the fields far and near,
This beautiful gift of the beautiful year.

Ere noontide its beauty had faded away, --
First snows, like first sorrows, endure but a day;
But fading or dying true love cannot know,
In June or November, mid flowers or snow.
