My husband found this poem in an old baseball book. A player named Bill Wambsganss found the poem in a newspaper In NYC back in the 20's, cut it out and carried it around in his wallet for years until it disintegrated....along with the title and the author. Anyone know anything about the poem?

Now summer goes
And tomorrow’s snows
Will soon be deep,
And the sky of blue
Which summer knew
Sees shadows creep.

As the gleam tonight
Which is silver bright
Spans ghostly forms,
The winds rush by
With a warning cry
Of coming storms.

So the laurel fades
On the snow swept glades
Of flying years,
And the dreams of youth
Find the bitter truth
Of pain and tears.

Through the cheering mass
Let the victors pass
To find fate’s thrust,
As tomorrow’s fame
Writes another name
On drifting dust.
