Autumn 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~
Fall An Autumn Greeting
"Come," said the Wind to the Leaves one day. "Come over the meadow and we will play. Put on your dresses of red and gold. For summer is gone and the days grow cold."

Indian Summer Nothing can steal your heart away Quicker than Indian Summer days, When the sun is warm and the shadows are cool, The lake water stands like a bright blue pool. The warm sand begs you to bare your feet The balmy air is meadow-sweet, Leaves are falling from colorful trees, And nature has moved in, merely to tease... She comes with her warm days, just to betray... For winter is only a breath away! ~Sallie Hinds~
Autumn Color Jack Frost paints a portrait of beauty With colors so vivid and bright; It's framed with a purple misty haze And draped in a frosty night.
Big, fat, bright orange pumpkins Nestle snugly among shocks of corn; Leaves flutter silently earthward; Ice sparkles like glass in the dawn.
The nuts drop softly upon the ground, Leaves fall and hide them there; Squirrels work away industriously, Their winter store to prepare.
A pale harvest moon sails serenely Across a star-studded sky, And smiles on a world full of color Since Jack Frost has just passed by. ~unknown~
Autumn Storehouse I'd like to take October days And store them in my mind, To warm me during Winter's reign When nature proves unkind.
Then I remember sunshine, The Autumn rich with gold, And tawny fields a-flower With wonders quite untold.
My thoughts will ease the moments When in reverie I dwell, And linger for the present In some bright majestic dell. ~Virginia Borman Grimmer~
Autumn Leaves One of the nicest beds I know Isn't a bed of soft white snow. Isn't a bed of cool green grass After the noisy mowers pass. Isn't a bed of yellow hay Making me itch for half a day But autumn leaves in a pile that high, Deep and smelling like fall and dry. That's the bed where I like to lie And watch the flutters of Fall go by. ~by Aileen Fisher~
Autumn Leaves Leaves in the autumn came tumbling down, Scarlet and yellow, russet and brown, Leaves in the garden were swept in a heap, Trees were undressing, ready for sleep. ~unknown~
After Apple Picking
by Robert Frost
My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a tree
Toward heaven still.
And there's a barrel that I didn't fill
Beside it, and there may be two or three
Apples I didn't pick upon some bough.
But I am done with apple-picking now.
Essence of winter sleep is on the night,
The scent of apples; I am drowsing off.
I cannot shake the shimmer from my sight
I got from looking through a pane of glass
I skimmed this morning from the water-trough,
And held against the world of hoary grass.
It melted, and I let it fall and break.
But I was well
Upon my way to sleep before it fell,
And I could tell
What form my dreaming was about to take.
Magnified apples appear and reappear,
Stem end and blossom end,
And every fleck of russet showing clear.
My instep arch not only keeps the ache,
It keeps the pressure of a ladder-round.
And I keep hearing from the cellar-bin
That rumbling sound
Of load on load of apples coming in.
For I have had too much
Of apple-picking; I am overtired
Of the great harvest I myself desired.
There were ten thousand thousand fruit to touch,
Cherish in hand, lift down, and not let fall,
That struck the earth,
No matter if not bruised, or spiked with stubble,
Went surely to the cider-apple heap
As of no worth.
One can see what will trouble
This sleep of mine, whatever sleep it is.
Were he not gone,
The woodchuck could say whether it's like his
Long sleep, as I describe its coming on,
Or just some human sleep.
