“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.” [Indian Summer]” ― William Cullen Bryant

Though it wasn’t a hat you would bolt with

Or be anxious to borrow or hire,

It was useful to blindfold a colt with

Or handle a bit of barbed wire.

Though the world may have thought it improper

To wear such old rubbish as that,

I’d have scorned the best London-made topper

In exchange for my old battered hat.
