Autumn or fall is one of the four temperate seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter usually in March (Southern Hemisphere) or September (Northern Hemisphere) when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier.
Autumn in poetry has often been associated with melancholy. The possibilities of summer are gone and the chill of winter is on the horizon. Skies turn grey, and people turn inward, both physically and mentally.
Fall it’s not my favorite time of the year, but has her own beauty. I love walking trough the streets and admire the trees with their yellow leaves that are falling down each time when the wind is more powerful. It’s time when you want to dream at the summer or at anything else. I’ve read somewhere that fall is the most benefic moment of the year when you can dream on. Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
I’ve find some quotes regarding fall and I’ve decided to share with you. Enjoy!
"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
- George Eliot
"A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air."
- Eric Sloane
"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all."
- Stanley Horowitz
"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
- Albert Camus
"Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, we have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!"
- Humbert Wolfe
"Then summer fades and passes and October comes. We'll smell smoke then, and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness, swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure."
- Thomas Wolfe
For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
"A tangerine and russet cascade
Of kaleidoscopic leaves
Creates a tapestry of autumn magic
Upon the emerald carpet of fading summer."
- Judith A. Lindberg, Shades of Autumn
A September to remember.
An October full of splendor.
A November to treasure.
- La Prevenchere, Brittany, France, Entertaining Angels
"I saw old autumn in the misty morn stand shadow less like silence, listening to silence."
- Thomas Hood
"After the leaves have fallen, we return to a plain sense of things. It is as if we had come to an end of the imagination, inanimate in an inert savoir."
- Wallace Stevens The Plain Sense of Things, 1952
"You can't hide your true colors as you approach the autumn of your life."
