Autumn
written by Walter de la Mare
Poems (1906) Link to further information




There is a wind where the rose was;
Cold rain where sweet grass was;
     And clouds like sheep
     Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought gold where your hair was;
Nought warm where your hand was;
     But phantom, forlorn,
     Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Sad wind where your voice was;
Tears, tears where my heart was;
     And ever with me,
     Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.
