Autumnal


O no! not least howe'er to my mind in winter cold,
Every star that outshines in white bier to brave thine eye,
Awakes me to this world, alas, but in dumb despair;
Away from what, too, shall grow old in summer's prime,
And leave me there where I still am loitering around,
Unlooked for love my Lord's light I hath lived to this day:
Yet not a line from out of sight my dark can e'er illumine,
The broken mirror of a hundred shadows by thy grave,
Of no compare by looking what you'll nothing find;
Everything so fair by fair creatures born, not so real,
Nor what I write to thy embassage, be worthy of thy praise,
That I may claim as well to be One with thee alone.
