THE FALLING OF THE LEAVES

by: William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

      UTUMN is over the long leaves that love us,

      And over the mice in the barley sheaves;

      Yellow the leaves of the rowan above us,

      And yellow the wet wild-strawberry leaves.

       

      The hour of the waning of love has beset us,

      And weary and worn are our sad souls now;

      Let us part, ere the season of passion forget us,

      With a kiss and a tear on thy drooping brow.
"The Falling of the Leaves" is reprinted from Crossways. W.B. Yeats. 1889.
