Last Line: But the violin for spring.
Subject(s): Autumn; Eyes; Love; Seasons; Soul; Spring; Fall


IN the autumn, in the weather
Golden, bronzed, and rich with sighs,
When we paced the lanes together,
Dreamings deep were in your eyes.

Then, O Love, 'twas like the sounding
Of a mellow horn that blows
Veiled but vibrant, far-resounding
Through the paths the woodland knows.

But with May the magic changes,
And the music pants and pleads:
Like a violin it ranges
All the soul's insistent needs.

All the hopes and pent desires,
All the daring and the doubt;
Like to strong plucked strings, the fires
Of our spirits rushing out.

In the autumn, love seemed sober;
Dear, 'tis now a passioned thing;
As the horn is for October,
But the violin for spring.
