DIRGE, by            
First Line: Summer is dead - / gone from us now
Last Line: Snow in her hair
Subject(s): Summer

Summer is dead --
Gone from us now.
Place a bright garland
On her still brow.

Fold her hands neatly
On her brown breast.
Hush! windy branches --
She is at rest.

Summer is dead,
Dearest and fair.
Now she lies sleeping,
Snow in her hair
