Page 254 - There is a sweetness in autumnal days, Which many a lip doth praise ; When the earth, tired a little and grown mute Of song, and having borne its fruit, Rests for a little space ere winter come. It is not sad to turn the face towards home, Even though it shows the journey nearly done ; It is not sad to mark the westering sun, Even though we know the night doth come.
