THE cotton clouds float out like seeds
From the sky's open milk weed pod;
Then late—across the vast grey meads
Stretch stars like sprays of golden rod.

Then suddenly the harvest moon
Arises from the hills and tow'rs,
And like a thriftless bee at noon
Flits far above the listless flow'rs.

Wild asters touch near vagrant path
In fragrance of wild clematis;
Then like our love's sweet aftermath
With haunting pathos lightly kiss.
