Fall, Leaves, Fall 


The Complete Poems of Emily Brontė (1923, d75) 

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.
