The Passing Of The Year

And You, deep shrinking in the gloom,
What find you in that filmy gaze?

What menace of a tragic doom?
What dark, condemning yesterdays?

What urge to crime, what evil done?
What cold, confronting shape of fear?

O haggard, haunted, hidden One
What see you in the dying year?

- from "The Passing of the Year," by Robert W. Service
