In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over
With all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The gray smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!

~ Robert Louis Stevenson (Scottish novelist, poet and travel writer; 1850-1894)
