Autumnal Ode

 
(for CLM)
 

Waves smile
in
raptured glee
 
Sky
leans to kiss
the heaving
sea
 
Trees
sway on
merrily
 
Waking spirit
burgeons
free
 
*
 
Neither
evenfall
nor high
noon
 
It is
come all
so fast
all so soon
 
Some vacant
easeful
hour of
day
 
When the
east wind
springs
fulsome gay
 
*
 
In jocund
heady state
of mind
 
Hallowed time
once left
behind
 
A dowry
of bashful
tulip blooms
 
The lazy
bower sweet
festoons
 
*
 
Birds hover
flying
low
 
Earth still
keeps on
spinning slow
 
All lie in
inebriate
swoon
 
Lost in
love
of
afternoon
 
*
 
Dusk will
swipe
these joys
away
 
But dusk is
so so far
away
 
So let
it
frolic
 
Let it
play
 
For
every sprite
must have
her way
 
*
 
Before
we leave
O all too
soon
 
In cool
breezes
and a madding
moon
 
The love
this light
and the
afternoon
