Subject(s): Day; September


There is a sweeping sadness in the day,
A premonition in the golden glow
That flushes field and sky; the warm winds blow
Across the late, bright blossoms where they play
In farewell tryst, before the frost betray
With sudden swiftness, passing to and fro
With jealous air, his black knife sharp to mow
Them down and taunt a golden world with gray.
The soft sky holds its lustrous haze and where
The flowers stand, not knowing their stark doom,
The day in mellow perfectness lays bare
The shining garment from the summer's loom,
And flaunts with gentleness the scarf of bloom
She weaves of golden beauty and despair.
