Poem: 
With the advent of the Autumn Trees behave as Nature taught 'em; Maple, Sumach, Plum and Poplar, and the Chestnut known as Horse, ere they shed the summer fashion, Break into a perfect passion of sweet rivalry in color (if deciduous, of course). Autumn comes, and Claret Ashes, Liquidambars, showing splashes From her palette, don the motley - Joseph's coats of many a hue: Russet-red and golden-yellow As the season waxes mellow. As for me, like certain gum-trees, I perversely grow more blue. I would quaff in ample measure every draught of Autumn's pleasure Were it not a grim foreboding spreads its color thro' the mind. And I know that Autumn breezes bring the first hint of the wheezes; For, when Fall the Summer follows, Winter is not far behind. Would I were like lucky mortals who, with winter at the portals, shed their ills like Autumn leaves and welcome days of snow and ice. Still, why not accept the present? Fall brings favors amply pleasant. Seat me - Ishoo! - Id the sudlight. Autumb cad be very dice.
