Autumn


Autumn comes in the time of
Year,
When Winter's Snows
Are
Quite, quite near!
  
      Ellen Tsagaris, Age 10




            Autumn has finally come; it is cold, and crisp, and the nights dark and early.  Finally, the leaves have changed, the apples taste crisper.  Coffee not only warms; it insulates


The colors are glowing, vibrant as the leaves die their slow, beautiful death.  My hand clutches, feeling the paint brush that isn't there, but once was.  I painted and photographed autumn frantically when I was young.   Here are some public domain and clip art images for your to enjoy; be sure to breathe deeply when the air is cool, and the sun is bright.


Remember collecting leaves - pressing them in books.  I have leaves that are older than I am, or at least, as old.  They live in my big, leather bound book of animals, itself a collectible.  Maybe it was gathering leaves and ironing them between sheets of wax paper that lead me to collecting dolls-- who knows!!
