A Memory

OCTOBER fulness in field and flowers,

The ebbing tide of the summer time

In mellow music of days and hours

That beat in rhythm and blend in rhyme;

Leaves that tremble before their turning,

The green that fades and the gold that grows,

A stifled brook, and a throb of yearning

In all that changes for all that goes!
