Beautiful Dreamer Serenade

4 Lull'd by the moonlight have all pass'd a way!

Beautiful, tender, wasting away for sorrow;
Thus to-day; and how shall it be with thee to-morrow?
Beautiful, tender-what else?
A hope tells.

Little Things
There's nothing very beautiful and nothing very gay
About the rush of faces in the town by day,
But a light tan cow in a pale green mead,
That is very beautiful, beautiful indeed . . .

O, A Beautiful Thing Is The Flower That Fadeth!

And perishing, smiles on the chill autumn wind;
A sweet desolation its ruin pervadeth,
A fragrant remembrance still lingers behind.

sunburned woman, the mother of the year, the taker of seeds.
