The Thief Irene F. Pawsey









The Thief

by Irene F. Pawsey

Autumn wind came stealing

Through the woods one day,

And, creeping round the tree, he stole

Their beauty all away.


He tore their russet dresses,

Combed off their golden hair;

He blew away the tattered bits-

And left them brown and bare.
