Wednesday Words - Fall, Leaves, Fall

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.

"Fall, Leaves, Fall" by Emily Brontë from The Complete Poems, © Copyright 1992, Penguin Books.
