NEIGHBORS, by            
First Line: A faint twitter at paling dawn
Last Line: You have moved out.
Subject(s): Neighbors

A FAINT twitter at paling dawn,
Or hurried chirp, with some crumbs on the lawn—
You did not have much time for talk
When I came to the cottage under the oaks
Where downy wine-red wallflowers grew—
For family cares were absorbing you,
When I moved in.

When your children were grown, you brought them to call,
As a neighbor should;
But our meetings all had a path between,
I never knew you as well as I would...
And now that golden leaves flutter about—
You have moved out.
