Emily Dickinson

The Red Leaves take the Green Leaves place
and the Landscape yields.
We go to sleep with the Peach in our Hands
and wake with the Stone,
But the Stone is the pledge of Summers to come—  

— Emily Dickinson, [268]. New Poems of Emily Dickinson. (The University of North Carolina Press January 1, 2015) Originally published September 24th 1993.
