Autumn

Written by: Walter Savage Landor | Biography
 | Quotes (24) |
 MILD is the parting year, and sweet 
 The odour of the falling spray; 
Life passes on more rudely fleet, 
 And balmless is its closing day. 

I wait its close, I court its gloom, 
 But mourn that never must there fall 
Or on my breast or on my tomb 
 The tear that would have soothed it all.
