I keep thinking about
 the end of autumn.

We saw a hawk descending
On a day in spring

Is shrunken small
By one Defaulting Face
Behind a Pall --

When it is said,
Some say.

By dreams, each one into a several world.

Thou'dst weep; but laugh, should it not last a day.

In soft distinction lie
The Day that a Companion came
Or was obliged to die

And dress the sleepy Day --

Existence has a stated width
Departed, or at Home --
