Welcome Autumn

SORROW hath a double voice,
Sharp to-day but sweet to-morrow :
Wait in patience, hope, rejoice,
Tried friends of sorrow.

Pleasure hath a double taste,
Sweet to-day but sharp to-morrow :
Friends of pleasure, rise in haste,
Make friends with sorrow.

Pleasure set aside to-day
Come again to rule to-morrow :
Welcomed sorrow will not stay,
Farewell to sorrow!

-Christina Rossetti
