All-cheering plenty, with her flowing horn,
Led yellow Autumn, wreath’d with nodding corn.
Burns.—Brigs of Ayr.

Crown’d with the sickle and the wheaten sheaf,
While Autumn, nodding o’er the yellow plain,
Comes jovial on.
Thomson.—Autumn, Line 1.

Behold congenial Autumn comes,
The Sabbath of the year!
Logan.—The Country in Autumn, Verse 1.

Boughs are daily rifled
By the gusty thieves,
And the book of Nature
Getteth short of leaves.
Hood.—The Seasons, Verse 2.
