Ode To Autumn

There is a subtle change in the air.
Cool mist-filled mornings, and daytime temperatures are seasonably pleasant.
Trees are slowly changing from greens to oranges and browns,  Autumn has unmistakably
arrived.

 
 
 
 
 



 
"Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells."

~ John Keats

That top photo is quite lovely. I've said it before, you've got the eye.

Do you edit your photos to enhance them?

No editing Janet, other than uploading to blog.
Thank you.

Love those misty photos. Remember having to learn Keats' Ode to Autumn for GCE, many moons ago. It's a beautidul one. Wonder if they still have to learn those classic poems or maybe they study the newer ones like Plath & Betjamin. I'll find out soon my granddaughter is doing her GCSE now.

Winifred: I had to study Keats for my "O" levels in school, it lead me to a lifelong love of poetry.
Yes, I wonder what the generations now are studying ?
Who knows :)
