Poem by William Cullen Bryant


November


Yet one smile more, departing, distant sun! 
One mellow smile through the soft vapoury air, 
Ere, oТer the frozen earth, the loud winds ran, 
Or snows are sifted oТer the meadows bare. 
One smile on the brown hills and naked trees, 
And the dark rocks whose summer wreaths are cast, 
And the blue Gentian flower, that, in the breeze, 
Nods lonely, of her beauteous race the last. 
Yet a few sunny days, in which the bee 
Shall murmur by the hedge that skim the way, 
The cricket chirp upon the russet lea, 
And man delight to linger in thy ray. 
Yet one rich smile, and we will try to bear 
The piercing winter frost, and winds, and darkened air.
