Let us move forth and assemble golden-rod!
O love, my love, see how upon the hills,
Where nonetheless the nice and cozy air palpitates and thrills,
And earth lies breathless within the smile of God,
Like plumes of serried hosts its tassels nod!
All the fairway vales its golden glory fills;
By lonely waysides and via mountain rills
Its yellow banners flaunt above the sod.
Perhaps the apple-blossoms have been extra fair;
Perhaps, pricey center, the roses have been extra sweet,
June’s dewy roses, with their buds part blown;
Yet what care we, whereas tremulous and rare
This golden sunshine falleth at our feet
And track lives on, although summer season birds have flown?
August, 1884.
Let the phrases stand as they have been writ, pricey heart!
Although not more for thee in earthly bowers
Shall bloom the sooner or the later flowers;
Although to-day ’tis springtime the place thou art,
While I, with Autumn, wander a ways apart,
Yet, within the identify of that lengthy love of ours,
Tested by way of years and attempted by way of sunlight and showers,
Let the phrases stand as they have been writ, pricey heart!
