After Harvest

by William Stanley Braithwaite

Faint is the speech of the tired heart
To the call of dreams replying,
When hope wends home across the fields
Where the rose o' the year is dying.

O weary head and heart and hands
Look up where the sun is dying —
Love leads you home across the fields
To the call of dreams replying.
