FROM SUMMER HOURS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Flower petals fall
Last Line: In the sick and soundless air?
Subject(s): Hearts; Love

FLOWER petals fall.
Dull flares the torch's mane;
Mine eyes to weep were fain,
Mine eyes possess thee all.

Yielded beyond recall,
Heart, naught shall heal thee again,
O clay molded into pain ...
Flower petals fall.

The roses all are dying ...
I am saying nothing, thou hearest
Under thy motionless hair.

Love is heavy. My soul is sighing ...
What wing brushes both of us, dearest
In the sick and soundless air?
