The Memory of the Setting Summer Sun

  • The memory of the setting Summer Sun,
  • Of warm and happy Life under his gaze,
  • Has given way to Autumn’s dark and dun,
  • And Winter’s icy dark and shortened days:
  • Now Winter thinks himself to be the god,
  • T’whom all must bow t’appease and supplicate,
  • While he destroys Life’s happiness by rod,
  • Of punishment called loneliness and fate;
  • But Sun is growing stronger by the day,
  • To melt the seeming Fate of Winter’s cold,
  • And introduce his own by golden ray,
  • To grow all future Life in living gold:
  • This is the Fate I make for you and me;
  • For I am Sun and you are Life, you see.
