seasons end . . .

summer season is coming to a close
school busses were on the road at 6:30 am
leaves are tinged with red & orange
my primroses have returned with the cool in the air

I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house

Nathaniel Hawthorne

Autumn is the mellower season
and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits

Samuel Butler

we would sing and dance around
because we know we can't be found
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade

he found himself wondering at times
especially in the autumn
 about the wild lands
and strange visions of mountains 
that he had never seen 
came into his dreams

J.R.R. Tolkien

Fall has always been my favorite season
the time when everything bursts with its last beauty
as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale
Lauren DeStefano

Autumn...the year's last loveliest smile.

William Cullen Bryant
