somerville community path (sonya kovacic)

The morns are meeker than they were--
The nuts are getting brown--
The berry's cheek is plumper--
The Rose is out of town.

The Maple wears a gayer scarf--
The field a scarlet gown--
Lest I should be old fashioned
I'll put a trinket on.

 — Autumn, by Emily Dickinson


Now on view in the MFA's Art of the America's wing: Sanford Robinson Gifford's An October Afternoon
