AUTUMN SONG, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Long autumn rain;/white mists which choke the vale, and blot the sides
Last Line: Of winged things.
Subject(s): Autumn; Seasons; Fall

LONG Autumn rain;
White mists which choke the vale, and blot the sides
Of the bewildered hills; in all the plain
No field agleam where the gold pageant was,
And silent o'er a tangle of drenched grass
The blackbird glides.

In the heart, -- fire,
Fire and clear air and cries of water-springs,
And large, pure winds; all April's quick desire,
All June's possession; a most fearless Earth
Drinking great ardours; and the rapturous birth
Of winged things.
