Strollin’ in Autumn

>> Thursday, October 21, 2010


October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
~George Cooper, "October's Party"


Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
~Elizabeth Lawrence


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


falling leaves
hide the path
so quietly
~John Bailey, "Autumn," a haiku year


Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.
~Carol Bishop Hipps


I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house.
So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.
~Nathaniel Hawthorne


Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
~George Eliot


Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
~Albert Camus


Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
~Emily Bronte


The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you
like the leaves of Autumn.
~John Muir


Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.
~William Cullen Bryant
