Autumn

IMG_1328

“The spirits of the air live on the smells
Of fruit; and Joy, with pinions light, roves round
The gardens, or sits singing in the trees.โ€
Thus sang the jolly Autumn as he sat;
Then rose, girded himself, and oโ€™er the bleak
Hills fled from our sight; but left his golden load.

      1. I find each transition exquisite, but sometimes the season can outlast its welcome! Sharp mornings and clear sunny days are ideal for autumn but in the UK it can often be a cue for dismal days of so-called Welsh mist or that peculiar halfway point between mist and drizzle known as mizzle — not much fun.

        PS Did you like my concealed rhyming couplets above? ๐Ÿ™‚
