Just Another Poem

A Late Walk

When I go up through the mowing field,
the headless aftermath,
smooth-laid like thatch with the heavy dew,
half closes the garden path.

And when I come to the garden ground,
the whir of sober birds
up from the tangle of withered weeds
is sadder than any words

A tree beside the wall stands bare,
but a leaf that lingered brown.
Disturbed, I doubt not, by my thought,
comes softly rattling down.

I end not far from my going forth
by picking the faded blue
of the last remaining aster flower
to carry again to you.

Robert Frost
