?. November night [sung text not yet checked]

Listen.	
With faint dry sound,	
Like steps of passing ghosts,	
The leaves, frost-crisp'd, break from the trees	
And fall.

?. Little Sister Rose-Marie [sung text not yet checked]

Little Sister Rose-Marie,
Will thy feet as willing-light
Run through Paradise, I wonder,
As they run the blue skies under,
Willing feet, so airy-light?

Little Sister Rose-Marie
Will thy voice as bird-note clear
Lift and ripple over Heaven
As its mortal sound is given,
Swift bird-voice, so young and clear?

How God will be glad of thee,
Little Sister Rose-Marie!"

?. Triad [sung text not yet checked]

These be
three silent things:
The falling snow . . . the hour
Before the dawn . . . the mouth of one
Just dead.

?. On Seeing Weather-Beaten Trees [sung text not yet checked]

Is it as plainly in our living shown,
By slant and twist, which way the wind has blown?
