Subject(s): Grief

There is an end to grief!
.... As there is an end
To the scarlet leaf:

Follow it whirling
Over brown hilltops,
Seeking dark spaces,
Somnolent places;
Drugging its pain
In a last wild embrace
With the furious rain;

Then to lie huddled
(Buried in grasses --
Unknowing, there passes
A storm overhead);
Once vivid as rust,
Upon the earth's crust
Now dissolving to dust!

There is an end to grief!
.... Witness the calm
Of the mouldering leaf!
