May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
In many parts of the world we have a specific change in the four seasons.

In areas where the weather gets colder in the autumn nature changes into many vibrant colors.


O sun and skies and clouds of June,
And flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour
October's bright blue weather.

Helen Hunt Jackson, 1831-1885

Beautiful thread. Thank you for posting.
Here where I live we do get the definite seasons.

From: October's Party
by George Cooper

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundrds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples'
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band...

Thank you Susan and yoko.

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow's wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow.
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know.
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away.

- Robert Frost, October

Thank you yoko and Margherita.
Your replies are crowned with beauty.

Love, Inda

As autumn returns to earth's northern hemisphere,
and day and night are briefly,
but perfectly,
balanced at the equinox,
may we remember anew how fragile life is ----
human life, surely,
but also the lives of all other creatures,
trees and plants,
waters and winds.

May we make wise choices in how and what we harvest,
may earth's weather turn kinder,
may there be enough food for all creatures,
may the diminishing light in our daytime skies
be met by an increasing compassion and tolerance
in our hearts.
- Kathleen Jenks, Autumn Lore

Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky,
How beautiful it is?
All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness
There is a poem, there is a song.
Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring.
When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with
The music of many leaves,
Which in due season fall and are blown away.
And this is the way of life.
- Krishnamurti

Colors burst in wild explosions
Fiery, flaming shades of fall
All in accord with my pounding heart
I Thought it was nice to bring back this colourful post. Autumn is still here and the colors are very bright.

Behold the autumn-weaver
In bronze and yellow dying
Colors unfold into dreams
In hordes of a thousand and one
The bleeding
Unwearing their masks to the last notes of summer
Their flutes and horns in nightly swarming
Colors burst within
Spare me those unending fires
Bestowed upon the flaming shades of fall
- Dark Tranquility, With the Flaming Shades of Fall

There is a harmony
In autumn, and a lustre in its sky,
Which through the summer is not heard or seen,
As if it could not be, as if it had not been!
- Percy Bysshe Shelley

Good of you to bring back this post Vicky.
There are so many nice old posts here and it would be a pity to leave them buried and forgotten.

Thank you yoko.

You have been very busy adding a lot of vibrant color to this thread.

Love, Inda

It is only her in large portions of Canada that wonderous second wind,
the Indian summer, attains its amplitude and heavenly perfection, -- the
temperatures; the sunny haze; the mellow, rich delicate, almost
flavoured air: Enough to live -- enough to merely be.
- Walt Whitman, Diary in Canada

Autumn is really here again, and the leaves are changing colour.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
- John Muir
