WILLIAM ALLINGHAM
Irish poet and editor
(1824 - 1889)

Now Autumn's fire burns slowly along the woods,
  And day by day the dead leaves fall and melt,
    And night by night the monitory blast
      Wails in the key-hole, telling how it pass'd
        O'er empty fields, or upland solitudes,
          Or grim wide wave; and now the power is felt
            Of melancholy, tenderer in its moods
              Than any joy indulgent Summer dealt.
      - Day and Night Songs--Autumnal Sonnet
        [Autumn]

Till glowworms light owl-watchmen's flight
  Through our green metropolis.
      - Greenwood Tree [Glowworms]

Up the airy mountain,
  Down the rushy glen,
    We daren't go a-hunting
      For fear of little men;
        Wee folk, good folk,
          Trooping all together,
            Green jacket, red cap,
              And white owl's feather!
      - The Fairies [Fairies]

Ring-ting! I wish I were a primrose,
  A bright yellow primrose blowing in the spring!
    The stooping boughs above me,
      The wandering bee to love me,
        The fern and moss to creep across,
          And the elm-tree for our king!
      - Wishing--A Child's Song [Primroses]
