God never made a fairer thing!
For Autumn's goldsmith art
Has turned the leaves to glistening sheen --
Forgotten is the living green,
That clothed them in the Spring.

Light filagree, in palest gold,
Dark bronze where shadows fall,
On bole and bough, the Chinese red
Of lacquer, deftly, faintly, spread,
With deep jade tints of mold.

No artist but the Master could
With lingering touch and sure,
Transform the tender prince of Spring,
Into this gorgeous, glittering king
Of Autumn, in the wood.
