The Leaves of Autumn



A pictorial essay with a bit of poetry.


'Fall Leaves and Acorns' (1885) by Ellen Bowditch Thayer Fisher Public Domain


"Just before the death of flowers,

And before they are buried in snow,

There comes a festival season

When nature is all aglow."

"The leaves fall patiently

Nothing remembers or grieves

The river takes to the sea

The yellow drift of leaves."

“There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen,

as if it could not be, as if it had not been!”

- Percy Bysshe Shelley

"Listen! the wind is rising,

and the air is wild with leaves,

We have had our summer evenings,

now for October eves!"

Went out like beauty from a face."

- E. A. Robinson
