Fall Leaves Fall by Emily Bronte

Copyright ©Far Away in the Sunshine 2010 – 2020

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.

Hibernating until Spring comes around seems so appealing this time of year. Don’t you think?

  1. Such a lovely photo! I just came from Jessie’s (behindthewillows.com) post about leaves and I feel like they were in a whole different season, ha 😀 Love the Bronte pairing, as well– perfect.

  2. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons. I adore the arboreal fireworks and am always delighted by the filigree of bare branches against the sky which follows them. Mind you I like winter too.
    Hibernation? Not for me, unless I could sleep summer away. I wish I could. How I wish I could.

Talk to me, I am listening :-)
