AFTER A3LIi. The apples are ripe in the orchard, The work of the reaper is done, And the golden woodlands redden In the blood of the dying sun. At the cottage door the nrandsire Sits pale in his easy chair. While the gentle wind :;t twilight Plays with his silver hair. A woman is kneeling besidde him: A fair young head is prest, In the first wild passion of sorrow, Against his aged breast; And far from over the distance The faltering echoes come, Of the flying blast of the trumpet, And the rattling of the drum. And the grand«ire speaks in whisper— "The end no man can see; But we give him to his country. And we give our prayers to Thee." The violets stand in the meadows, The rose-buds fringe the door, And over the grassy orchard The pink white blossoms pour. But the grandsire's chair is empty The cottage is dark and still: There's a nameless grave on the battle-field, And a new one under the hill. And a pallid, tearless woman, By the cold hearth sits alone, And the old clock in the corner Ticks on with a steady drone.
