Impostor

This Autumn of the yellow lanes
Is come a sorry vagabond,
Grown tearful now and over-fond
Of grey and melancholy rains.

He loves his griefs and broken sighs,
His sorrows of a thousand years,--
And thinks we do not know those tears
Are wood-smoke in his eyes.

If leaves go by us in a gust,
He needs must clutch his heart, and say:
"Alas" or else "Alack-a-day"--
And thinks we take it all on trust.

So sad and sad a rake he is!--
And yet so glad of being sad,
Knowing no fellow ever had
Such fine, becoming griefs as his.



(The end)

And we may yet discover, after all, How flesh is glory whitening on the
