All th? wealth of summer's sweets.
Stored up kisses of the sun,
Nipping couches of the frost.

A ripe persimmon.
Dear, when yon and I were young. .
In the days when first we loved,
We were fooli: !-.. and fell on*.
At little things, until love proved
A green persimmon.
Frost of years, life's sun and storm,
Grief and pain together passed.
Peace, and trust and happiness.
Love's perfection, come at last,
A ripe persimmon.
