Song from Lyrical Poems

Richard Watson Dixon (1833–1900)
 
WHY 1 fadest thou in death,
      Oh yellow waning tree?
Gentle is autumn’s breath,
      And green the oak by thee.
 
But with each wind that sighs        5
      The leaves from thee take wing;
And bare thy branches rise
      Above their drifted ring.
 
Note 1. Dixon. Song. From ‘Lyrical Poems’. Daniel. 1887. [back]
