IX.

With a sense of things that are over,
A touch of the years long dead,
A perfume of withered clover,
An echo of kindness fled,

Silently thaw to rain,
And the love that the old years know breathes
Dying, not born again.

Cold and grey is the morning,
Grey with evanishing rose;
We wake, and I feel her warning,
I know what the doomed man knows.

Stayed are the streams of madness,
Dried is the fount of tears;
But oh, at the heart what sadness!
And oh, in the soul what fears!
