Here are 5 sections of classic autumn poems with a word or phrase missing.

To play, fill in the words and phrases, and name the poet.
You are allowed to look this up and having the titles should help with this.
You get 1 point per word or phrase correctly filled in and 1 point per correctly named poet.
Each ? represents one missing word.
You must PM your answers to me by the END of next weekend (end of October 23 your time) and I will post the answers up the week after.
*DO NOT POST ANY PART OF THE ANSWERS IN THIS THREAD AS THIS WILL SPOIL THE GAME FOR EVERYONE.*

This is for anybody to play, ML members, Entertainment members, visitors, lurkers, or people just randomly passing who want to play!
If you're playing the Sibling Rivalry challenge, you will get 1 point in that too for participating in this.

1. From "To Autumn"

O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stain'd
With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof; there thou may'st rest,
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe,
And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
Sing now the ? ? ? ? ? ?.


2. From "Autumn Fires"

In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the ? ?
See the smoke trail!

3. "Autumn"

Laden Autumn here I stand
Worn of heart, and weak of hand:
Nought but rest seems good to me,
Speak the word that ? ? ?.

4. From "Autumn Song"

Come then, find your ball and racket,
Pop into your winter jacket,
With the lovely bear-skin lining.
While the sun is brightly shining,
Let us ? ? ? together
And just love the autumn weather.

5. From "The Autumn"

Hear not the wind -- view not the woods;
Look out o'er vale and hill-
In spring, the sky encircled them --
The sky is round them still.
Come autumn's ? -- come winter's cold --
Come change -- and human fate!
Whatever prospect Heaven doth bound,
Can ne'er be desolate.

Enjoy!
I'll post the full poems up just to read and enjoy after the quiz is closed.
