RICH DAYS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Welcome to you rich autumn days
Last Line: Into the loneliest lanes we know.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Autumn; Seasons; Fall

Welcome to you rich Autumn days,
Ere comes the cold, leaf-picking wind;
When golden stooks are seen in fields,
All standing arm-in-arm entwined;
And gallons of sweet cider seen
On trees in apples red and green.

With mellow pears that cheat our teeth,
Which melt that tongues may suck them in;
With cherries red, and blue-black plums,
Now sweet and soft from stone to skin;
And woodnuts rich, to make us go
Into the loneliest lanes we know.
