Help! The world is on fire! God has set His forests ablaze; and the flickering flames of Autumn lick the sky with their smokeless haze. No hoses can douse these fires; or chemicals quell their flames. For only the pallor of winter can show them denuded and plain. Then softly the weeping snowflakes cover those naked frames, until they glisten like diamonds and kindle the sky again.
