Autumn
 
All-cheering plenty, with her flowing horn,
Led yellow Autumn, wreath’d with nodding corn.

Crown’d with the sickle and the wheaten sheaf,
While Autumn, nodding o’er the yellow plain,
Comes jovial on.

Behold congenial Autumn comes,
The Sabbath of the year!

Boughs are daily rifled
  By the gusty thieves,
And the book of Nature
  Getteth short of leaves.
