GOOD-BY, good-by to Summer!
Clear DotFor Summer's nearly done;
The garden smiling faintly
Clear DotCool breezes in the sun;
Our thrushes now are silent,
Clear DotOur swallows flown away,---
But Robin's here in coat of brown,
Clear DotAnd scarlet breast-knot gay.
Clear DotRobin, Robin Redbreast,
Clear DotO Robin dear!
Clear DotRobin sings so sweetly
Clear DotIn the falling of the year.

Bright yellow, red, and orange,
Clear DotThe leaves come down in hosts;
The trees are Indian princes,
Clear DotBut soon they'll turn to ghosts;
The scanty pears and apples
Clear DotHang russet on the bough;
It's Autumn, Autumn, Autumn late,
Clear Dot'Twill soon be Winter now,
Clear DotRobin, Robin Redbreast,
Clear DotO Robin dear!
Clear DotAnd what will this poor Robin do?
Clear DotFor pinching days are near.

The fireside for the cricket,
Clear DotThe wheat-stack for the mouse,
When trembling night-winds whistle
Clear DotAnd moan all round the house.
The frosty ways like iron,
Clear DotThe branches plumed with snow,---
Alas! in Winter dead and dark,
Clear DotWhere can poor Robin go?
Clear DotRobin, Robin Redbreast,
Clear DotO Robin dear!
Clear DotAnd a crumb of bread for Robin,
Clear DotHis little heart to cheer!
