Pumpkins in the cornfields,
Gold among the brown,
Leaves of rust and scarlet
Trembling slowly down;
Birds that travel southward,
Lovely time to play;
Nothing is as pleasant
As an autumn day!

Author: 'Aija' (Kathy)
When autumn leaves have fallen down
The trees are stark and bare
I burrow in my self made nest
And find my comfort there.
Long days and nights of bitter winds
From the north do blow
Leaving toes and fingers numb
Give cheeks a rosy glow.
There’s many warm places in the world
If I should choose to roam
But my heart is in the north-land
My heart is here, at home.

Autumn mornings: sunshine and crisp air, birds and calmness, year's end and day's beginnings. ~Terri Guillemets

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. ~Elizabeth Lawrence

I love the colours of autumn and the crisp mornings and stark blue skies. I also love the wonderful colours that set everywhere a-glow. The only thing I don't like about Autumn is the fact that I know winter will be here VERY soon. :-(

Great poems.

Nothing is a pleasant as an Autumn day as long as it isn't hissing down all day like yesterday. lol

Autumn is okay, but winter I don't care for one bit. One of these days hubby and I will fly to someplace warm and enjoy the month of January in the sun and warm.

Have a terrific day. My very best to Duke. :)
