Spirit of Autumn Past


Autumn in all her glory has not arrived in North Wales as yet.  So while I’m waiting I’ve dug out some of my favourite photos from Autumns past.

“Go, sit upon the lofty hill,

And turn your eyes around,

Where waving woods and waters wild

Do hymn an autumn sound.

The summer sun is faint on them

The summer flowers depart

Sit still— as all transform’d to stone,

Except your musing heart.”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning, The Autumn

“Is not this a true autumn day?

Just the still melancholy that I love

that makes life and nature harmonize.”

George Eliot
