565. Autumn
  
MILD is the parting year, and sweet 
  The odour of the falling spray; 
Life passes on more rudely fleet, 
  And balmless is its closing day. 
 
I wait its close, I court its gloom,         5
  But mourn that never must there fall 
Or on my breast or on my tomb 
  The tear that would have soothed it all.
