I'll Put A Trinket On

Autumn Poplars along the River Epte - Claude Monet


  Autumn
by Emily Dickinson


The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek 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.
