|Autumn Leaves, painted by Sir John Everett Millais.|
"I SAW old Autumn in the misty morn
|Stand shadowless like Silence, listening|
|To silence, for no lonely bird would sing|
|Into his hollow ear from woods forlorn,|
|Nor lowly hedge nor solitary thorn;—|
|Shaking his languid locks all dewy bright|
|With tangled gossamer that fell by night,|
| Pearling his coronet of golden corn."|
Thomas Hood 1798-1845
