Along the river's summer walk,
     The withered tufts of asters nod;
And trembles on its arid stalk
     The hoar plume of the golden-rod.
And on a ground of sombre fir,
     And azure-studded juniper,
The silver birch its buds of purple shows,
     And scarlet berries tell where bloomed the sweet wild-rose!
