NATALIE MERCHANT - SPRING AND FALL: TO A YOUNG CHILD - Written for Gerald Manley Hopkins 1880 poem C D Margaret, are you grieving G C Em Over golden grove unleaving? By and by C D Leaves, like the things of man, you G C Em With your fresh thoughts care for, can you? C D Ah! as the heart grows older G C It will come to such sights colder Em D C By and by, nor spare a sigh, by and by C D G Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie; C Em And yet you will weep and know why. D Now no matter, child, the name: C Em Sorrows' springs are all the same. They're all the same. C D G Nor mouth had, no nor mind, expressed C Em What heart heard of, ghost guessed: C D It is the blight man was born for, G C Em It is Margaret that you mourn for.
