A Child's Garden of Verses (1885)
Robert Louis Stevenson

Autumn Fires

In the other gardens

And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over

And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!

Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
