Crown of the year—thou golden fair October:
Type of our pause upon our being's height,
Breathless we stand, enveloped by thy splendor—
Let us—ah—let us profit by thy fight!

Granted these days like coins of minted sunshine,—
Granted the twofold gift of life and health,—
Let us not hoard, like cold, unloving misers,—
Let us—ah—let us profit by thy wealth!

Let us transmit, in waves of loving kindness—
To the less favored children of our race,—
Some of thy peace, thy healing and thy gladness,—
Let us—ah—let us profit by the grace!
