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