THISTLEDOWN: 10. SUMMER, by                    
First Line: The low, large moon lies in the liquid sky
Last Line: Summer is dead ... The moon dropped from the west.
Subject(s): Summer

THE low, large moon lies in the liquid sky,
And breathless stars are watching her from far ...
So I should watch, if I were but a star,
The lanquid-eyed, sweet Summer fleeting by.
A white, frail-petaled rose is at her breast—
Ere the closed leaves have folded back and shown
The great gold gleaming heart, the rose has flown ...
Summer is dead ... the moon dropped from the West.
