Poem by Dora Sigerson Shorter


You Will Not Come Again


The green has come to the leafless tree,
   The earth brings forth its grain;
The flower has come for the honey bee:
   You will not come again.

The birds have come to the empty nest,
   All winter full of rain;
So music has come where the silence was:
   You will not come again.

Love will come for the weak lambs cry;
   Alas for my hearts dull pain!
In the cycle of change I alone am lone:
   You will not come again.
