GEORGE ARNOLD
American poet and litterateur
(1834 - 1865)

O'er hill and field October's glories fade;
  O'er hill and field the blackbirds southward fly;
    The brown leaves rustle down the forest glade,
      Where naked branches make a fitful shade,
        And the lost blooms of Autumn withered lie.
      - [October]

Here
  With my beer
    I sit,
      While golden moments flit:
        Alas!
          They pass
            Unheeded by:
              And as they fly,
                I,
                  Being dry,
                    Sit, idly sipping here
                      My beer.
      - Beer [Drinking]

O sweet September, thy first breezes bring
  The dry leaf's rustle and the squirrel's laughter,
    The cool fresh air whence health and vigor spring
      And promise of exceeding joy hereafter.
      - September Days [September]

'Twas a jolly old pedagogue, long ago,
  Tall and slender, and sallow and dry;
    His form was bent, and his gait was slow,
      His long thin hair was white as snow,
        But a wonderful twinkle shone in his eye.
          And he sang every night as he went to bed,
            "Let us be happy down here below:
              The living should live, though the dead be dead."
                Said the jolly old pedagogue long ago.
      - The Jolly Old Pedagogue [Happiness]
