Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Cut grass lies frail:
Brief is the breath
Mown stalks exhale.
Long, long the death


It dies in the white hours
Of young-leafed June

With chestnut flowers,
With hedges snowlike strewn,

White lilac bowed,
Lost lanes of Queen Anne's lace,
And that high-builded cloud
Moving at summer's pace.
