Come said the wind to the
leaves one day,
Come o'er the meadows and
we will play.
Put on your dresses
Scarlet and Gold,
for summer is gone and
the days grow cold.
The Wind and the Leaves
George Cooper (1840-1927)

Lovely picture and poem, but you credited the wrong author. The poem for which you printed the excerpt is called “The Wind and the Leaves” by George Cooper (1840-1927), not George Eliot.ReplyDelete
