Autumn's Calling

"September days have the warmth of summer in their briefer hours,
But in their lengthening evenings a prophetic breath of autumn.
The cricket chirps in the noontide, making the most of what remains of his brief life.
The bumblebee is busy among the clover blossoms of the aftermath,
And their shrill and dreamy hum hold the outdoor world above the voices of the song birds,
Now silent or departed."-

~ September Days : Rowland E. Robinson, Vermont.

I always loved autumn but I never cared for the shorter days. Now that my sweet husband has passed away, I am not looking forward to those short days even more.

I'll be very happy to see Autumn coming through the gate. We had another very hot day here on the Plateau.
