The Autumn Leaf (2)


Autumn leaf!
How blood-red and fire-like you are
Like my heart splendidly sad
Wholly covered by traces of harsh events
Withered by successive cold and hot seasons
Greatly amazed by the quick passage of time
Bewildered by the gravity of unknown sorrow
Filled with strange stories you seem
Drawing back to yourself as my heart does
Waiting for annihilation by a whimsical wind
As my soul and the nature are so bonded well,
Autumn melancholy creeps into me deep and thorough
A heart-burning sorrow though it is, highly splendid and exalting.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
