ELINOR HOLT WYLIE
American poet and novelist
(1885 - 1928)

In masks outrageous and austere
  The years go by in single file;
    But none has merited my fear,
      And none has quite escaped my smile.
      - Let No Charitable Hope [Aging]

I shall lie hidden in a hut
  In the middle of an alder wood,
    With the back door blind and bolted shut,
      And the front door locked for good.
        I shall lie folded like a saint,
          Lapped in a scented linen sheet,
            On a bedspread striped with bright-blue paint,
              Narrow and cold and neat.
                The midnight will be glassy black
                  Behind the panes, with wind about
                    To set his mouth against a crack
                      And blow the candle out.
      - Prophecy [Death]

The winter will be short, the summer long,
  The autumn amber-hued, sunny and hot,
    Tasting of cider and of scuppernong;
      All seasons sweet, but autumn best of all.
        The squirrels in their silver fur will fall
          Like falling leaves, like fruit, before your shot.
      - Wild Peaches [Seasons]
