Whispering leaves, summer breeze, A time to postpone all destinies. In crimson gown, she's on the town, 'Til the dark eyes go slowly down. Leaving memories of the golden hours, Laughing children in leafy bowers; The sunny noon, with the robin's tune, And the feverish blossoms aswoon! But, a time comes for the surrender, When there's nothing more to render; And where the bluebirds I have known? It's fate sometimes to stand alone. In the languid, violet, creeping chill, Night embraced before, embraces still. Palest moon, when the stars are out, Peace is what these moments are about! As the ghost of day goes his weary way, To return again through another doorway. But, for now, he just bids his goodbye, To the glowing, lovely ruby of the sky!
