"Autumn Leaves" By Angelina Wray In the hush and the lonely silence Of the chill October night, Some wizard has worked his magic With fairy fingers light. The leaves of the study oak trees Are splendid with crimson and red. And the golden flags of the maple Are fluttering overhead. Through the tangle of faded grasses There are trailing vines ablaze, And the glory of warmth and color Gleams through the autumn haze. Like banners of marching armies That farther and farther go; Down the winding roads and valleys The boughs of the sumacs glow.
So, open your eyes, little children, And open your hearts as well, Till the charm of the bright October Shall fold you in its spell.
