POEM OF THE DAY: Late August

by William Stanley Braithwaite (1878 – 1962).

Late August (1908)

Change of heart in the dreams I bear—
Green leaf turns to brown;
The second half of the month is here,
The days are closing down.
Love so swift to up and follow                        5
The season’s fugitive,
If thou must, make rapture hollow,
But leave me dreams to live.
Change of heart! O season’s end!
Time and tide and sorrow!                            10
I care not what the Fates may send,
Here’s to ye, goodmorrow!
