Field Naturalist's Magazine
Natural History, Beauty, Piety
Describes the scenes of rural autumn, including some detailed accounts of birds. Reflects at length on the decay of natural objects. Concludes: 'Blest, who can often care, or find / Employment for the vacant mind, / In nature's scenes! Thrice blest is he, / Who onward casts his eyes to see, / In all that through the waters move, / In earth beneath, and heav'n above, / The Sovereign Pow'r who nature made, / The Author in his works display'd!' (360).
