"Scarlet Leaves of Gold"

Whenever I look at this image I am reminded of a verse from one of my favorite childhood stories. I don't remember the name of the story, but the plot involved some kids who, seeking adventure, moved from place to place trying to make a home. Something would happen, it would rain, for example, and they would find a better place, each time taking something with them. The verse I am reminded of goes something like, "so we packed our bags with sweaters and socks and scarlet leaves of gold. . ."
