    Scatter the clouds that hide
The face of heaven, and show
Where sweet peace doth abide,
Where Truth and Beauty grow.
          Morning Hymn.
7996
    Behind the western bars
The shrouded day retreats,
And unperceived the stars
Steal to their sovran seats.


And whiter grows the foam,
The small moon lightens more;
And as I turn me home,
My shadow walks before.
          The Clouds have left the Sky.
 
John Henry Boner. (1845–1903)

    Gather leaves and grasses,
    Love, to-day;
For the Autumn passes
    Soon away.
Chilling winds are blowing.
It will soon be snowing.
          Gather Leaves and Grasses.
7998
    Ah, we fondly cherish
    Faded things
That had better perish.
    Memory clings
To each leaf it saves.
Chilly winds are blowing.
It will soon be snowing
    On our graves.
          Gather Leaves and Grasses.
7999
      “I love you because
You’re a sweet little fool!”
          The sweet little Fool (The Sequel).
