Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Autumn
 
The melancholy days are come, the saddest of the year,
Of wailing winds, and naked woods, and meadows brown and sear.
        Bryant.—Death of the Flowers.
  1
        Lands will be lit
With every autumn’s blaze of Golden Rod,
And purple Asters everywhere will nod
  And bend and wave and flit.
        Helen Hunt.—Asters and Golden Rod.
  2
        To her bier
        Comes the year,
Not with weeping and distress, as mortals do,
  But to guide her way to it
  All the trees have torches lit.
        Lucy Larcom.—The Indian Summer.
  3
The tints of autumn—a mighty flower-garden, blossoming under the spell of the enchanter, Frost.
        Whittier.—Patucket Falls.
