After a long hot summer, the coming of fall inspires reflection and a mellow sense of optimism. So, bring on the poets!

"No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace

As I have seen in one autumnal face."

– John Donne

"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

"How beautifully the leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days."

– John Burroughs

"Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn."

– Elizabeth Lawrence
