Anticipating Autumn...

Though it's not officially autumn, yet,
the month of September has begun
with wonderful signs of its coming!

It was evident in yesterday's air,
as it was much less humid and a few degrees lower.
And this morning, I sit with my windows open,
feeling and smelling that wonderful, fall coolness
that fills the crisp air! I love it!
Autumn is like having a long missed friend return.

I hope y'all, too, are enjoying
the calm, welcoming changes of fall.

Below are a few poems/quotes I thought I'd share...
all about this upcoming season...

I love fall! Fall is exciting.
It's apples and cider. It's an airborne spider.
It's pumpkins in bins. It's burrs on dog's chins.
It's wind blowing leaves. It's chilly red knees.
It's nuts on the ground. It's a crisp dry sound.
It's green leaves turning And the smell of them burning.
It's clouds in the sky. It's fall. That's why...
I love fall.

When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year.
~ Charlotte L. Riser

"The morrow was a bright September morn;
The earth was beautiful as if newborn;
There was nameless splendor everywhere,
That wild exhilaration in the air,
Which makes the passers in the city street
Congratulate each other as they meet."
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"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

"And he changeth the times and the seasons..."
~ Daniel 2:21

Fall is my favorite season. I love the crisp air, and chilly nights, changing leaves and I love a carpet of colorful leaves in the yard.

Well, I'm in Florida, so I don't yet have any weather remotely resembling Fall!

BUT it is my favorite time of year, and I am looking forward to it very much.

I enjoyed reading your quotes about Autumn!

Espcially the "airborn spider" bit. We have lots of webs and I got into one at the clothes line this past Saturday. My Husband who was peeping out wondered why I was dancing...LOL!

Happy Fall!!

I love fall too! I am hoping that each day brings you more recovery from your sickness. Take care and give those sweet children a hug from us.
