autumn quotes- 10 of
Bright yellow, red, and orange,
The leaves come down in hosts;
... with autumn falling over everything;
The plush leaves the chattels in barrels
The apples are all getting tinted
In the cool light of autumn.
The measured blood beats out the year's delay.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
Autumn wins you best by this its mute
Appeal to sympathy for its decay.
Summer wanes; the children are grown;
Fun and frolic no more he knows;
Where are the flowers, the fair young flowers, that lately sprang
The melancholy days are come, the saddest of the year--
Of wailing winds and naked woods and meadows brown and sear.
So gentle and so beautiful, should perish with the flowers.
