Green Leaves and Sere
By Mathilde Blind (1841–1896)
 
THREE tall poplars beside the pool
  Shiver and moan in the gusty blast;
The carded clouds are blown like wool,
  And the yellowing leaves fly thick and fast.
 
The leaves, now driven before the blast,        5
  Now flung by fits on the curdling pool,
Are tossed heaven-high and dropped at last
  As if at the whim of a jabbering fool.
 
O leaves, once rustling green and cool!
  Two met here where one moans aghast        10
With wild heart heaving towards the past:
  Three tall poplars beside the pool.
