Robert Louis Stevenson

A Child's Garden of Verses. Garden Days. 6. Autumn Fires

In the other gardens
    And all up the vale, 
From the autumn bonfires
    See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over
    And all the summer flowers, 
The red fire blazes,
    The grey smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!
    Something bright in all! 
Flowers in the summer,
    Fires in the fall!
