1586. April—and Dying
 
By Anne Reeve Aldrich
 
 
GREEN blood fresh pulsing through the trees,
  Blacks buds, that sun and shower distend;
All other things begin anew,
  But I must end.
 
Warm sunlight on faint-colored sward,        5
  Warm fragrance in the breezes’ breath;
For other things art heat and life,
  For me is death.
