Autumn Arrives Today

O world, I cannot hold thee close enough!
-Edna St. Vincent Millay

I can smell autumn 
dancing in the breeze.
The sweet chill of pumpkin
 and crisp sunburnt leaves.
~Ann Drake

To everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter 
or purpose under heaven."
Ecclesiastes 3:1

 Autumn is the dim shadow that clusters
 about the sweet, precious things that God
 has created in the realm of nature. 
While it robs them of life, 
it tears away the veil and reveals
 the golden gem of beauty and sweetness. 
Beauty lurks in all the dim old aisles of nature,
 and we discover it at last.
 ~Northern Advocate

 Welcome Autumn!
