THE COLLEGE OF SURGEONS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: As I stood at the door
Last Line: Whistled into a hall!
Subject(s): Leaves

As I stood at the door
Sheltered out of the wind,
Something flew in
Which I hardly could find.

In the dim gloomy doorway
I searched till I found
A dry withered leaf
Lying down on the ground.

With thin pointed claws
And a dry dusty skin,
-- Sure, a hall is no place
For a leaf to be in!

Oh where is your tree,
And your summer and all,
Poor dusty leaf,
Whistled into a hall!
