SWANSONG

The Shadows rise, the Sun hath set
	The Stars burn pale and cold
The Evening mist hangs damp and wet
	And I am growing old

Beneath the Autumn Moon I spy
	The leaves of  burnished gold
That mould'ring on the ground do lie
	And I am growing old

Here in the fading light I see
	Time's hoary tale unfold
For Death will soon be here for me
	And I am growing old

The Autumn Wind blows damp and wet
	And chills the fingers round my heart
I die with only one regret
	My Love and I must part

I fear the Night, so cold and wet
	I fear the chill the Grave doth hold
Then hold me tight and tighter yet
	For I am growing old

    Very nice Michael; it reminds me of the old Japanese death poems in a sense :) I'm glad you've posted it.
