Scarlet dogwood berries bring
The lingering thrushes. But they sing
No more. Sumac, like a fire,
Lights the hillside. But the brook
Has a sad, untidy look;
Matted water-cress lies low,
Flowers are gone and chill winds blow;
Leaves on every side expire.
But the maples flaunt their pride,
And the oak trees, far and wide;
Till the brook renews its stride,
Encouraged by the bracing air
To hurry on, that it may share
In the pageant everywhere.
