WHEN AUTUMN COMES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When autumn comes, across the years
Last Line: When autumn comes.
Subject(s): Autumn; Seasons; Fall

When Autumn comes, across the years
As surely comes thy face, alas!
Comes with strung pearls on seeded grass,
And dawn's bright lashes soft with tears.
Ah! surely then thy footfall nears
My threshold, and I see thee pass
And smile, as in some haunted glass
Smiles a dead girl, and disappears,
When Autumn comes.

More real than Summer with her rose,
Her pomps beside thee are dim things,
Resounding unsubstantial shows;
Thou, from the shadow thy beauty throws,
Deathless with many vanishings --
When Autumn comes.
