Let other lovers lie, in love and rest;

Thou dost beguile the world, unbless some mother.

Down the lanes of August, and the summer getting old.

And the ricks stand gray to the sun,
Singing:-'Over then, come over, for the bee has quit the clover
And your English summer's done.'

Gold! We wheeled in the furrow, fired with the faith of fools.
Fearless, unfound, unfitted, far from the night and the cold,
Heard we the clarion summons, followed the master-lure-Gold!
