The English poet and philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge(1772-1834), along with his close friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the English Romantic Movement. Well known for his poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Coleridge also shared his thoughts on the changing seasons of life:

"The one red leaf, the last of its clan,

That dances as often as dance it can,

Hanging so light, and hanging so high,

On the topmost twig that looks up at the sky."

– Samuel Taylor Coleridge
