September Flowers Sadly Bloom at Night

XIX
September flowers sadly bloom at night
Whose subtle fragrance quickly pass away
In light their vestal beauty hid from sight. 
Confused at being planted by the way
Those treading sorrow's path at twilight weep.
Because of grievous troubles had been spent
And lost a treasure that they could not keep.
Did gain much consolation from their scent
He wipes their tears with petals soft that finds
A secret grief whose heart of those exclude
The hollow words of such offend the mind
Late flowers bloom, kind fragrances exudes
   September flowers do reveal such light
   They truly weep who do so well at night
