Subject(s): Autumn; Loss; Seasons; Fall


Fluttering leaves by the wind are tossed,
Autumn has come, summer is lost;
Perhaps somewhere in the meadow breeze
It sought sweet rest 'neath its golden leaves.

Summer, sweet summer, where have you fled?
Oh, beautiful summer, I fear you are dead;
I searched the great wildwood, I looked everywhere
Summer, sweet summer, your face is not there.

You vanished so quickly, Oh where have you flown?
My sweet lovely comrade, you left me alone
With only a memory and a last red rose.
Did you say farewell when I plucked that rose?
