"When the bold branches
Bid farewell to rainbow leaves -
Welcome wool sweaters."
- B. Cybrill
"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
"Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for
biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season,
and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits."
- Samuel Butler
With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp'd, break free from the trees
- Adelaide Crapsey, 1878-1914, November Night
