VI. The Grave’s Triumph
In Autumn
By Arthur Reed Ropes (“Adrian Ross”) (1859–1933)
 
OVER the grave in the grass,
  Dead leaves eddy and play;
Dead leaves, and the wind grieves
  All night and day.
 
Under the grass of the grave,        5
  Lips, that were red, are white;
Dead lips, and the rain drips
  All day and night.
