"October" (Hayne)

Random Poetry List LXXXI

The passionate Summer's dead! the sky's a-glow,
   With roseate flushes of matured desire,
The winds at eve are musical and low,
   As sweeping chords of a lamenting lyre,
   Far up among the pillared clouds of fire,
Whose pomp of strange procession upward rolls,
With gorgeous blazonry of pictured folds,
   To celebrate the Summer's past renown;
   Ah, me! how regally the Heavens look down,
O'ershadowing beautiful autumnal woods,
   And harvest fields with hoarded increase brown,
And deep-toned majesty of golden floods,
   That raise their solemn dirges to the sky,
   To swell the purple pomp that floateth by.

Paul Hamilton Hayne (American, AD 1830-1886)
