Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,

   Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;

  Conspiring with him how to load and bless   With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;

To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,

   And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;  

   To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells   With a sweet kernel; 

to set budding more,

And still more, later flowers for the bees,

Until they think warm days will never cease,   

  For summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells.
