The last of the zinnia and bumblebee


Come, pensive Autumn, with thy clouds, and storms,
And falling leaves, and pastures lost to flowers;
A luscious charm hangs on thy faded forms,
More sweet than Summer in her loveliest hours...
John Clare, "To Autumn," The Village Minstrel, and Other Poems, 1821
