Three Autumn Quotes

When I think of Autumn I think of pumpkins, and ghouls and goblins and little children trick-or-treating. I think of  the leaves changing, of bundling up to stay warm and the crisp cool air. To me no one can describe autumn as well as these three author and poets.

The autumn wind is a pirate. Blustering in from sea with a rollicking song he sweeps along swaggering boisterously. His face is weather beaten, he wears a hooded sash with a silver hat about his head… The autumn wind is a Raider, pillaging just for fun.
~ Steve Sabol

A wind has blown the rain away and blown the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand. I think, I too, have known autumn too long.
~ E.E. Cummings

There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster 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

    Autumn is by far my favourite season! Nature is never as beautiful as it is in autumn, my walks in the forest tend to take forever because I constantly stop to admire the colours and the low slanting light.
    And not just nature, civilisation is great this time of year too! Everything that’s been on summer break comes back – the buses go as usual, the stores are open regular hours, TV shows starts airing again. Even if I haven’t been in school for many years, I always get that “back to school” feeling, like everything starts again. It’s great.

    I can’t think of any great autumn quote right now, but I like the ones you posted.

    1. It’s true nature really is never as beautiful as it is in autumn, the changing of the leaves is my favorite. I get that “back to school” feeling as well even though it has been a long time since I was last in school. But then again I work for a company who’s major customer base is schools and teachers and we get busy during back to school season so that might be why.
