Fall, Leaves, Fall

Saturday, September 22, 2012

I remember memorizing this poem in junior high. It's perfect for the first day of autumn.

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
--Emily Bronte

    A little sad, if you like the sunshine. Emily liked the winter season.
