Autumn – Five Classic Poems

 

Autumn Poems

It’s been refreshing to have an actual autumn season here in Indianapolis this year, a pause between the scorching heat of summer and the bitter cold of winter. In celebration, we offer five of our favorite fall poems.

 
 

Besides the Autumn Poets Sing
Emily Dickinson

BESIDES the autumn poets sing,
A few prosaic days
A little this side of the snow
And that side of the haze.
 
A few incisive mornings,
A few ascetic eves,—
Gone Mr. Bryant’s golden-rod,
And Mr. Thomson’s sheaves.
 
Still is the bustle in the brook,
Sealed are the spicy valves;
Mesmeric fingers softly touch
The eyes of many elves.
 
Perhaps a squirrel may remain,
My sentiments to share.
Grant me, O Lord, a sunny mind,
Thy windy will to bear!
