POEM OF THE DAY: Autumn Fires

by Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 – 1894).

 

Autumn Fires

 

In the other gardens

And all up the vale,

From the autumn bonfires

See the smoke trail!

 

Pleasant summer over                        5

And all the summer flowers,

The red fire blazes,

The grey smoke towers.

 

Sing a song of seasons!

Something bright in all!                    10  

Flowers in the summer,

Fires in the fall!

  1. Oh yes, I can feel this heart beating, beating as those rain-drum-drops out my window.
    Thank you dear.
