Lady Autumn
by Esther M Clark-Hill

Wilful Lady Autumn Coming down the lane; Here, a glint of sunshine, There, a gust Of rain,

And a stray wind a-whimpering against the window pane.Lovelier and wilder In her tawny gown, Bordered 'round with yellow, Red and russet-brown,

Than ever Lady Summer was, when she came back to town.Greyer are her skies than Summer's ever known; In the wind's deep voice there Comes a fretful tone;

And here are scarlet berries where a rose once held her own.Softly, Lady Autumn, Go by hill and glade, In your gypsy colours Flauntingly arrayed:

Of just such transient beauty Lady Summer’s grave was made.
