John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:7992
AUTHOR:Andrew Lang (1844–1912)
QUOTATION:The windy lights of Autumn flare;
  I watch the moonlit sails go by;
I marvel how men toil and fare,
  The weary business that they play!
  Their voyaging is vanity,
And fairy gold is all their gain,
  And all the winds of winter cry,
“My Love returns no more again.”
ATTRIBUTION:Ballade of Autumn.
