|The colorful view from my library just two weeks ago.|
|Have I got a room with a view, or what?|
by Ernest Dowson
Pale amber sunlight falls across
The reddening October trees,
That hardly sway before a breeze
As soft as summer: summer's loss
Seems little, dear! on days like these.
Let misty autumn be our part!
The twilight of the year is sweet:
Where shadow and the darkness meet
Our love, a twilight of the heart
Eludes a little time's deceit.
Are we not better and at home
In dreamful Autumn, we who deem
No harvest joy is worth a dream?
A little while and night shall come,
A little while, then, let us dream.
Beyond the pearled horizons lie
Winter and night: awaiting these
We garner this poor hour of ease,
Until love turn from us and die
Beneath the drear November trees.
"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
--L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
|Aren't these mountains in autumn simply amazing?|
I love all the colors of autumn, especially on the mountains where I live,
and like Anne, I'm very glad I live in a world where there are Octobers!!
