The Pleasures of Fall...

Clouds gather, treetops toss and sway; But pour us wine, an old one! That we may turn this dreary day To golden, yes, to golden!

Autumn has come, but never fear, wait but a little while yet, Spring will be here, the skies will clear, and fields stand deep in violets.

The heavenly blue of fresh new days oh, friend, you must employ them Before they pass away. Be brave! Enjoy them; oh, enjoy them!

- Theodor Storm, A Song in October
