I stepped without my doorway
One fine October morn
And was dazzled by the golden glow
That came from tree and lawn.

A neighbor called out blithely,
"What a lovely morning!
I ne'er before saw day like this
With such a golden dawning."

The rain had fallen for a week
And loosened maple leaves;
A southern wind rose gustily,
And blew them from the trees,

Gold leaves lay on the sills and roofs
They covered steps and ground.
You'd think King Midas in the night
Made gold all things around.

The sun came out and with his light
Bathed this magnificance
Which gave the earth a sudden look
Of wondrous opulence.
