Sourced[edit]

  • Gather leaves and grasses,
    Love, to-day;
    For the Autumn passes
    Soon away.
    Chilling winds are blowing.
    It will soon be snowing.
    • Gather Leaves and Grasses, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
  • Ah, we fondly cherish
    Faded things
    That had better perish.
    Memory clings
    To each leaf it saves.
    Chilly winds are blowing.
    It will soon be snowing
    On our graves.

  • "I love you because
    You're a sweet little fool!"
