Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
1227. Feminine
 
By Henry Cuyler Bunner
 
 
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!”
