Beside The Idle Summer Sea
Beside the idle summer sea,
And in the vacant summer days,
Light Love came fluting down the ways,
Where you were loitering with me.

To bloom is then to wane;
The folded bud has still
To-morrow at its will;

I Know I Am But Summer To Your Heart
I know I am but summer to your heart,
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.

Life Is Lovely All The Year

Smiling welcome to the spring,
Lovers choose a wedding day -
Life is love in merry May!

Fickle Summer
Fickle Summer's fled away,
Shall we see her face again?
Hearken to the weeping rain,
Never sunbeam greets the day.

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

Which float so idly on the summer air,
And help to make each summer morning fair,
Shining like silver in the summer sun,

But when summer suns have tanned 'em and they're racing to and fro,
I somehow think the children make the finest sort of show.

One faded and one blown like summer flowers;
What need of hope, with summer in the sky?
What of regret, with all fair morrows ours?
