IN AUTUMN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Now that the birds are gone
Last Line: Returns forever to remain.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Autumn; Seasons; Fall


Now that the birds are gone
That sang the summer through,
And now that, one by one,
The leaves are going too,
Is all their beauty but a show
To fade forever when they go?

Nay, what is heard and seen,
In time must pass away;
But beauty, born within,
The blossom of a day,
Unto its hiding place again
Returns forever to remain.
