The winter approaches, the summer is past,
How fast the leaves fall in the chilly north blast.
They gather in heaps by the side of the way,
Then scatter like children in rollicking play.
They seem as the birds with intelligence crowned
Slow fluttering down from the trees to the ground.
How joyous their movements as upward they spring
Like some clumsy fledgling first trying its wing.
No lark appears happier chasing its note,
The joy in its heart leaping out at its throat.
