SHE might have known it in the earlier Spring, 
  That all my heart with vague desire was stirred; 
And, ere the Summer winds had taken wing, 
  I told her; but she smiled and said no word. 
The Autumn's eager hand his red gold grasped,         5
  And she was silent; till from skies grown drear 
Fell soft one fine, first snow-flake, and she clasped 
  My neck and cried, "Love, we have lost a year!"
