A Farewell
By Harriet Monroe
 
GOOD-BYE!—no, do not grieve that it is over,
  The perfect hour;
That the winged joy, sweet honey-loving rover,
  Flits from the flower.
 
Grieve not—it is the law. Love will be flying—        5
  Yes, love and all.
Glad was the living—blessed be the dying.
  Let the leaves fall.
