Happy 1st Day of Fall 2015

Ready to say goodbye to Summer?  You may not have been last week but now that Autumn has officially arrived, you just might be.  It’s a collection of new beginnings, traditions, festivals, and a time to settle in for the upcoming Winter.  The leaves turn color and fall to the earth.  The wind and rain show themselves.  As it is a fascinating time, you may yearn to know more.  Check out the links below for some Autumn (and Fall) content and if you want more…search for it.

October’s the month…

October’s the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down –
October is red
And golden and brown.


October leaves are lovely
They rustle when I run
Sometimes I make a heap
And jump in them for fun.


Autumn leaves float quietly down
And form a carpet on the ground.
But when those leaves are stepped upon,
Listen for the crackling sound.

October Splendor

“October’s the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down –
October is red
And golden and brown.”
–   Can Teach Songs  

“The clump of maples on the hill,
And this one near the door,
Seem redder, quite a lot, this year
Than last, or year before;
I wonder if it’s jest because
I Love the Old State more!”
–   David L. Cady, October in Vermont
