The Last Rose of Summer

“Tis the last rose of summer,
Left bloomin alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone;
No flower of her kindred,
No rose-bud is night,
To reflect back her blushes,
Or give sigh for sigh.
-Thomas Moore-

When the Frost Is On the Punkin

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock,
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin’ turkeycock,
And the clackin’ of the guineys, and the cluckin’ of the hens,
And the rooster’s hallylooyer as he tiptoes on the fence;
O, it’s then’s the times a feller is a-feelin’ at his best,
With the risin’ sun to greet him from a night of peaceful rest,
As he leaves the house, bareheaded, and goes out to feed the stock,
When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock.
-James Whitcomb Riley-
