from August to November."
- Rose G. Kingsley, The Autumn Garden
"Just before the death of flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season
When nature is all aglow."
"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October." - Nathaniel Hawthorne
"The sweet calm sunshine of October, now Warms the low spot; upon its grassy mold The purple oak-leaf falls; the birchen bough
drops its bright spoil like arrow-heads of gold."
- William Cullen Bryant
Nothing remembers or grieves
The river takes to the sea
The yellow drift of leaves."
- Sara Teasdale
