Shall the stones forget the weight of my feet

As I tread upon them?

Shall the creek cease to laugh for me

As it has laughed for so many years?

Shall the leaves find it a pointless effort

To turn my favorite shade of violet, and

Shall the peep-toads and the crickets forget to conspire

And sing my lullaby?

When a home loses her mistress

Does she lament her loss?

The author's comments:

My one source of melancholia upon the impending truth that I shall soon go off to lead a life of my own.
