“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” – Albert Camus
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking successive autumns” – George Eliot
“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face” – John Donne
“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile” – William Cullen Bryant
“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons” – Jim Bishop.
My Autumn is joyous too, inspired by the words of my mother when she was a child seeing a chicken being plucked: “Oh! The chicken is losing all it’s leaves!”. My bird’s lost leaves keep winter safe until it’s ready to hatch.
