Down comes rain drop, bubble follows;
  On the house-top one by one
    Flock the synagogue of swallows,
      Met to vote that autumn's gone.

Oh, raise your deep-fringed lids that close
  To wrap you in some sweet dream's thrall;

      You wore but last night at the ball.

        [Roses]

Eyes so transparent,
  That through them one sees the soul.
