Quotation by Frederick Goddard Tuckerman

And Change with hurried hand has swept these scenes:
The woods have fallen, across the meadow-lot
The hunter's trail and trap-path is forgot,
And fire has drunk the swamps of evergreens;
Yet for a moment let my fancy plant
These autumn hills again: the wild dove's haunt,
The wild deer's walk: in golden umbrage shut,
Frederick Goddard Tuckerman (1821–1873), U.S. poet. And Change with hurried hand has swept these scenes (l. 1–7). . .
