On a Book of Poems
Thin leaves of autumn Falling on a grave; The man who wrote this book Was brave. Here is no trickery Of silver clinking, Only deep wisdom And clear thinking. Each poem is a leaf Brittle and wan, Crumbling earthward In a frosty sun. A hundred leaves falling This man was brave indeed— That loam may form, and one flower May carry seed.
