At Play In Autumn

Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.
~ Faith Baldwin

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

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.
 For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
~ Edwin Way Teale

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

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

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

October is a symphony of permanence and change.
~ Bonaro W. Overstreet
