    Listen to the Water-Mill:
    Through the live-long day
    How the clicking of its wheel
    Wears the hours away!
    Languidly the Autumn wind
    Stirs the forest leaves,
    From the field the reapers sing
    Binding up their sheaves:
    And a proverb haunts my mind
    As a spell is cast,
    "The mill cannot grind
    With the water that is past."
