Happy First Day Of Fall


“Autumn’s the mellow time. “ ~ William Allingham

“Glorious are the woods in their latest gold and crimson, Yet our full-leaved willows are in the freshest green. Such a kindly autumn, so mercifully dealing With the growths of summer, I never yet have seen.” ~ William C. Bryant

“No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace As I have seen in one Autumnal face.” ~ John Donne

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. “ ~ Stanley Horowitz

“It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.” ~ P. D. James

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” ~ John Muir

“There is a harmony In autumn, and a lustre in its sky, Which through the summer is not heard or seen, As if it could not be, as if it had not been!” ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

“All those golden autumn days the sky was full of wings. Wings beating low over the blue water of Silver Lake, wings beating high in the blue air far above it . . . bearing them all away to the green fields in the South. ”
~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

“A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated
to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made.  The
acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter
how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.”

“Once more the liberal year laughs out
O’er richer stores than gems or gold:
Once more with harvest song and shout
Is nature’s boldest triumph told.”
–   John Greenleaf Whittier

changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.”
~Henry Beston, Northern Farm

“Listen!  the wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!” ~ Humbert Wolfe
