Passing Notice

    Passing Notice

    Grieve not for summer’s going—

    Her time was filled to overflowing

    With Nature’s bounty. Life for her

    Was neither vague nor gossamer,

    So let there be no sorrow now

    As she deserts the weary bough

    To join the flight of the golden leaf;

    She, herself, knows not of grief.
