A LYRIC OF AUTUMN, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: There is music in the meadows, in the air
Last Line: Wings the nocturne nature plays upon her lyre.
Subject(s): Autumn; Seasons; Fall

THERE is music in the meadows, in the air --
Autumn is here;
Skies are gray, but hearts are mellow,
Leaves are crimson, brown, and yellow;
Pines are soughing, birches stir,
And the Gipsy trail is fresh beneath the fir.
There is rhythm in the woods, and in the fields,
Nature yields:
And the harvest voices crying,
Blend with Autumn zephyrs sighing;
Tone and color, frost and fire,
Wings the nocturne Nature plays upon her lyre.
