Time for Autumn

No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.
~John Donne


Now the summer is grown old
the light long summer
          is grown old.

Leaves change
and the garden is gold
with marigolds and zinnias
tangled and bold
blazing blazing
orange and gold.

The light long summer is grown old.

-Charlotte Zolotow

Autumn Fires

In the other gardens 
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires,
See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes, 
The gray smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer, 
Fires in the fall!

-Robert Louis Stevenson

May you experience all the blessings of this new season!
