A flying whirl of leaves blown by
Vine-leaves wreathed and twined
A far-off wail in the west wind's cry,
Like a child that is left behind,
So the years that are fled from us
Flit before they are dead from us
Like the Vi-king's ship to the wind.
Oh the wail of the years that weep,
Waking us in the night,
Walking forever in all our sleep,
Weary and wan and white,
They are our children that cry to us
They are our visions that die to us
Left alone in the night.
