A Boy's Will: Now Close the Windows

Updated May 6, 2020 | Infoplease Staff

Now Close the Windows

It is time to make an end of speaking.
NOW close the windows and hush all the fields;
If the trees must, let them silently toss;
No bird is singing now, and if there is,
Be it my loss.

It will be long ere the marshes resume,
It will be long ere the earliest bird:
So close the windows and not hear the wind,
But see all wind-stirred.
