A tribute to Autumn

autumn-birdAutumn is a wonderful time of year and there are certainly many writers who have written beautiful words about it:

“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.
