'Fall, leaves, fall' - Emily Bronte

Leaves - photo by J. Johnsen 

 Fall, leaves, fall


BY EMILY BRONTË
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.

    1. Thanks, Laurin! Wouldn't this be a great exercise for kids to do? Take a poem about nature and illustrate it on line....
