“The Autumn,” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Fall_leaf“Go, sit upon the lofty hill,

And turn your eyes around,

Where waving woods and waters wild

Do hymn an autumn sound.

The summer sun is faint on them —

The summer flowers depart —

Sit still — as all transform’d to stone,

Except your musing heart.”

— from “The Autumn,” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
