Have you ever loved a rose,
And watched her slowly bloom;
and as her petals would unfold,
you grew drunk on her perfume.

Cool dews falling,
In a wood of oak and may.

No longer is the road a tinsel strand
Whereon a line of moto-cars flash by,
No longer is the August sun a brand
Upon the smooth blue surface of the sky.
And where has heat and wind-blown dust, is peace
Of shadows now; where clamor, is repose
Of summer twilight and a slow release
Of dew on bracken and on briar rose.
The rising moon unthreads the tangled way
Of brooks, cows cross a meadow on a path
And trees are silhouetted, wistful-gray,
Against the sunset's yellow aftermath,
While squares of lamplight over window-sills
Betray the small farm houses on the hills.

Where swans do take their rest,
July, with languid steps,
Comes forth so richly drest.
For all the summer tints
Are woven in her dress;
A girdle spun of gold
Her dainty waist doth press.
