To Autumn by John Keats

Where are the songs of spring? Yeah where are you
Don't think about them, you have your music too. --
While barred clouds bloom the gently dying day,
And touch the stubble plains with a rosy hue;
Then the little mosquitos mourn the river in a lamenting chorus, carried up
or sinking when the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs moan loudly from undulating bourn;
hedge crickets sing; and now with threefold softness
The red breast whistles from a garden pit;
And the gathering of swallows chirps in the sky.

Of light wind and fluff.
