TO AN AUTUMN LEAF

Wee shallop of shimmering gold!

Slip down from your ways in the branches.

Some fairy will loosen your hold—

Wee shallop of shimmering gold.

Spill dew on your bows and unfold

Silk sails for the fairest of launches!

Wee shallop of shimmering gold,

Slip down from your ways in the branches.
