A Song of Spring and Autumn
IN the season of white wild roses We two went hand in hand: But now in the ruddy autumn Together already we stand. O pale pearl-necklace that wandered O'er the white-thorn's tangled head! The white-thorn is turned to russet, The pearls to purple and red! On the topmost orchard branches It then was crimson and snow, Where now the gold-red apples Burn on the turf below. And between the trees the children In and out run hand in hand; And, with smiles that answer their smiling, We two together stand.
