EPIGRAM
 
COME away! Come away! There's a frost along the marshes,
And a frozen wind that skims the shoal where it shakes the dead black water;
There's a moan across the lowland and a wailing through the woodland
Of a dirge that seeks to send us back to the arms of those that love us
      .      .      .      .      .      .      .      .
Come away! come away!—or the roving fiend will hold us,
And make us all to dwell with him to the end of human faring.
EDWIN ARLINGTON ROBINSON.
