Autumn Dusk In Central Park By Evelyn Scott

Autumn Dusk In Central Park By Evelyn Scott Featureless people glide with dim motion through a quivering blue silver; Boats merge with the bronze-gold welters about their keels. The trees float upward in gray and green flames. Clouds, swans, boats, trees, all gliding up a hillside After some gray old women who lift their gaunt […]

Autumn Song By W. H. Auden

Autumn Song By W. H. Auden Now the leaves are falling fast, Nurse’s flowers will not last, Nurses to their graves are gone, But the prams go rolling on. Whispering neighbours left and right Daunt us from our true delight, Able hands are forced to freeze Derelict on lonely knees. Close behind us on our […]

Autumn Woods By William Cullen Bryant

Autumn Woods By William Cullen Bryant Ere, in the northern gale, The summer tresses of the trees are gone, The woods of Autumn, all around our vale Have put their glory on. The mountains that infold, In their wide sweep, the coloured landscape round. Seem groups of giant kings, in purple and gold, That guard […]

Autumn By T. E. Hulme

Autumn By T. E. Hulme A touch of cold in the Autumn night – I walked abroad, And saw the ruddy moon lean over a hedge Like a red-faced farmer. I did not stop to speak, but nodded, And round about were the wistful stars With white faces like town children. Copyright © by the […]

The Autumn Wind By Annette Wynne

The Autumn Wind By Annette Wynne The autumn wind is wild and free, It rides up here fresh from the sea; It rides and rides and never knows Just where it goes; It blew my papers all away And acted boldly all the day; But when the night grew dark and colder, The autumn wind […]

Autumn Blue Mist By Hilda Conkling

Autumn Blue Mist By Hilda Conkling This is night’s own trailing wind That goes by in blue mist When morning wakes. This is not smoke from chimneys, No fire breathes and puffs it out Across the sun. This is autumn on an October morning . . . Early hills, Fields in a veil. Copyright © […]

Trees In Autumn By John Jay Chapman
