Subject(s): Autumn; Seasons; Fall

When autumn comes
Resplendent in his gold and red,
Speak not of summer
As of one soon dead.

For autumn, with his courtly bow
And ardent smile
And gentle courtesy,
But woos sweet summer yet awhile.

Till she in all her pastel loveliness
Floats willingly into his strong embrace,
And scarlet arms deep fringed with gold
Enfold with summer's trailing lace.

By soft Aeolian strains
Their wedding march is led,
And clustered round by swaying nymphs
Is summer thus to autumn wed.
