(handwritten in red ink) 255(randomly selected poem)LXXXIII. HOARDED JOYI said: Nay, pluck not,-let the first fruit be:Even as thou sayest, it is sweet and red,But let it ripen still. The trees bent headSees in the stream its own fecundityAnd bides the day of fulness. Shall not weAt the suns hour that day possess shade,And claim our fruit before its ripeness fade,And eat it from the branch and praise the tree?I say: Alas! our fruit hath wooed the sunToo long,--t is fallen and floats adown the stream.Lo, the last clusters! Pluck them every one,And let us sup with summer- ere the gleamOf autumn set the years pent sorrow free,And the woods wail like echoes from the sea.
