First Line: The summer goes, with all its birds and flowers
Last Line: And peep unnoted there behind your screen.
Subject(s): Summer


THE Summer goes, with all its birds and flowers;
The Autumn passes with its solemn sky;
The Winter comes again -- yet you and I
Know not the old companionship once ours.
The twilight mist between us hangs and lowers;
Your face I see not -- voice I cannot hear.
No letter tells me you in thought are near.
The west-wind blows and sweeps away the showers,
But from the west no whisper comes of you.
Friends press around you in your distant home --
(Your distant home I never yet have seen,)
And old familiar greetings still renew;
While I with fancy's eyes alone can come
And peep unnoted there behind your screen.
