"O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn’s being,
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing,
Yellow, and black, and pale, and hectic red,
Pestilence-stricken multitudes: O thou,
Who chariotest to their dark wintry bed"
"The winged seeds, where they lie cold and low,
Each like a corpse within its grave, until
Thine azure sister of the Spring shall blow"
excerpts from "Ode To The West Wind" by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Today is the first day of Fall, which means Halloween is just around the corner! The seasons change, things begin to wither and die,...ah but isn't Autumn beautiful? My only regret is that living down here in South Florida, we don't get to experience the turning of the leaves, the changing colors from a vivid green to the wonderful browns and oranges of Fall. I must live vicariously through all you folks who get to enjoy the best of what the Fall season brings. May you all have a fantastic Fall Season, and I'm sure you all look forward to Halloween as much as I do! Enjoy!
