AUTUMN LEAVES


"The time of the falling leaves has come again. Once more in our morning walk we tread upon carpets of gold and crimson, of brown and bronze, woven by the winds or the rains out of these delicate textures while we slept.

    How beautifully the leaves grow old! How full of light and colour are their last days! There are exceptions, of course. The leaves of most of the fruit-trees fade and wither and fall ingloriously. They bequeath their heritage of colour to their fruit. Upon it they lavish the hues which other trees lavish upon their leaves . . . 

    But in October what a feast to the eye our woods and groves present! The whole body of the air seems enriched by their calm, slow radiance. They are giving back the light they have been absorbing from the sun all summer."    - John Burroughs - 'The Falling Leaves' under the Maples.
