First Line: Unearthly radiance of the autumn hills
Last Line: To keep this vision that I thought was lost!
Subject(s): Autumn; Seasons; Fall


Unearthly radiance of the autumn hills,
Long have I sought you, as one seeks a flame,
Knowing your presence but the unspoken name
Born of all beauty that inspires and thrills;
Following your crimson fire that slow distills
From scarlet maple to the oak's deep stain,
Of your rich splendor I have drunk again,
Seeing you golden where the sunshine spills.
This is my secret: Forest, touched with frost,
You have at last restored my borrowed key
That opens gates long closed; your heights are mine,
Your wind and sun and clouds! I taste your wine,
Given to all those who thirst! Then grant to me
To keep this vision that I thought was lost!
