Miss Dickinson’s Autumn

I didn’t know what Emily Dickinson saw when Autumn beckoned  her to write this poem. Maybe it’s the same thing I saw today.

 

AUTUMN

The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheeck is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
 
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I’ll put a trinket on.
