Excerpt from the Poems and Verses of Charles Dickens (From "The Village Coquettes")
Hail to the merry Autumn days, when yellow corn-fields shine,
Far brighter than the costly cup that holds the monarch’s wine!
Hail to the merry harvest time, the gayest of the year,
The time of rich and bounteous crops, rejoicing, and good cheer!
