Vignettes of Fall

Autumn is a second spring 

where every leaf is a flower.
                                                                                                     Albert Camus

Merry Autumn Days
By Charles Dickens

Hail to the merry Autumn days,

when yellow corn-fields shine,

Far brighter than the costly cup that

holds the monarch's wine!

Hail to the merry harvest-time, 

the gayest of the year,

The time of rich and bounteous crops,

rejoicing, and good cheer!

Tis pleasant on a fine Spring 

morn to see the buds expand,

Tis pleasant in the Summer 

time to view the teeming land;

Tis pleasant on a Winter's 

night to crouch around the blaze,  ~

But what are joys like these, 

my boys, to Autumn's merry days!

~ Wishing you crisp Autumn mornings ~
