Jessie B. Rittenhouse, ed. (1869–1948).  The Second Book of Modern Verse.  1922.
 
Old Age
 
Cale Young Rice
 
 
I HAVE heard the wild geese,
I have seen the leaves fall,
There was frost last night
On the garden wall.
It is gone to-day        5
And I hear the wind call.
The wind?… That is all.
 
If the swallow will light
When the evening is near;
If the crane will not scream        10
Like a soul in fear;
I will think no more
Of the dying year,
And the wind, its seer.
