Thoughts on Autumn



Winter is an etching, spring a watercolour, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.
~Stanley Horowitz


A wind has blown the rain away and blown the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand. I think, I too, have known autumn too long.
- e. e. cummings


Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;

- Keats, Ode to Autumn


Autumn is my favourite season.

- Johnny Kelly


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


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


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

- P D James
