Autumn Fires

by Robert Louis Stevenson, 1885

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 gray smoke towers.    Sing a song of seasons!   Something bright in all! Flowers in the summer,   Fires in the fall!
