IN EARLY AUGUST, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: On august evenings mists arise
Last Line: Seems it, since it was may?
Subject(s): August

ON August evenings mists arise;
They ease the edge of everything;
They shade the crimson in the skies,
And hush the cornfields; and they bring
A mist about my eyes.

Feebly the weed-heap fumes away;
Sweet is the smell, but strange and strong.
'Tis night; an hour ago 'twas day;
Autumn is in a month; how long
Seems it, since it was May?
