Monday Musings: Fall Sentiments
Updated: Oct 4, 2022
This lovely time of year is captured eloquently in the words of many writers and poets. I've compiled quotes that describe the beauty and uniqueness of autumn. Enjoy!
"Go, sit upon the lofty hill,
And turn your eyes around,
Where waving woods and waters wild
Do hymn an autumn sound.
The summer sun is faint on them —
The summer flowers depart —
Sit still — as all transform’d to stone,
Except your musing heart."
- Elizabeth Barrett Browning
"Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale."
- Lauren DeStefano
"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
- L.M. Montgomery
"See it, smell it, taste, it, and forget the time of day or year. Autumn needs no clock or calendar."
- Hal Borland
"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
- Albert Camus
"I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze. The sweet chill of pumpkin, and crisp sunburnt leaves."
- Ann Drake
I hope these words have inspired you to soak up this special season!
