Warmth
and softness
of summer—
gone!

Firefly, where is your glow? ...

In the still moon-shadows of summer-night
I forgot the red glare,
and horror,
and blood, and gall, and iron
of our world. ...

Now autumn-death
has come. ...

Firefly, where is your glow?

Hard and cold is the moonlight,
Black and cold its shadows,
And bleak my heart
As a wind-swept quarry.
