Autumn Amen

By Susan Knight

I know it's a late post. I couldn't think of anything to write. So I figured I'd let you have a visual feast of my favorite season. I am blessed that I lived in Pennsylvania where I learned to love autumn. I now live in Utah where I am reminded always of the "Creator" of beauty in nature. I have been spending more time outside, taking pictures, than inside writing. October is my favorite month.

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Chester County, Pennsylvania
 
"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
Albert Camus
 
Alpine Loop, highest point, Utah
 
“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, Wither
 
Alpine Loop, Utah
 
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” 
George Elliot
 
Chester County, Pennsylvania
 
“Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile.” 
William Cullen Bryant
 
Fall in Central Pennsylvania
 
“Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!”
Humbert Wolfe

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”
Nathaniel Hawthorne, The American Notebooks
 
 
"Amen"
