A UTUMN
193
The day is of a paler hue,
The night is of a darker blue,
Just as it was a year ago;
For time runs fast, but grace is slow!
Life glides away in many a bend, In chapters which begin and end ;
Each has its trial, each its grace, Each in life's whole its proper place. Life has its joinings and its breaks, But each transition swiftly takes Us nearer to or farther from The threshold of our heavenly home.
Years pass away ; new crosses come; Past sorrow is a sort of home, An exile's home, and only lent For needful rest in banishment. It narrows life, and walls it in, And shuts the door on many a sin; 'T is almost like a calm fireside, Where humbled hearts are fain to bide.
