To-night the winds begin to rise
And roar from yonder dropping day:
The last red leaf is whirled away,
The rooks are blown about the skies.

This way and that dividing the swift mind.
Truth-teller was our England's Alfred named.
The woman's cause is man's: they rise or sink
Thou madest Death: and lo, thy foot
Is on the skull which thou hast made.
