And not the full four seasons of the year;
And you must welcome from another part
Such noble moods as are not mine, my dear.

Shall we see her face again?
Hearken to the weeping rain,
Never sunbeam greets the day.

Farm Boy After Summer
A seated statue of himself he seems.
A bronze slowness becomes him. Patently
The page he contemplates he doesn't see.
