Though nd winds pass— Faint odours in the grass, Wiicre no flowers grow ; And fluttering of wings, And birds' sweet vows Once babWed on the boughs Of faded Springs. That murmur in the air That ebbs and waves, Is music from the graves Of all things fair, And mingles in the still Of twilight's hush With voices of the Bush From swamp and hiii. He who has shed soul-husk Hay catch that tone May feel it through the lone, Grave halls of Dusk Low ringing in his ears ; And ponder long. ? The meaning of tbe song He faintly hears.
