    Autumn Leaves by Victor Hugo

    Before the songs I joy in singing,
    So young, such wafts of perfume bringing,
    Endured the brunt the world allows,
    Far from the crowd and all its crushing,
    Ah! how they bloomed, a garland blushing,
    How green and fragrant, on my brows!

    Now torn from off the tree that beareth,
    Flowers which the blighting northwind teareth,
    — Like a dream’s leavings pitiable —
    They wander, scattered hither and thither,
    In dustiness and mud to wither,
    At the winds’ and the waters’ will.

    And like dead leaves in autumn showered,
    I see them, of their bloom deflowered,
    Blown all along the barren lea;
    The while a crowd that presses round me,
    And treads to earth the wreath that crowned me,
    Goes laughing at the naked tree.
