What does autumn mean to you?

09/09/2012

This small, calligraphic letter was sketched out in my quiet moments at home, which are rare.  Simply drawn, it is pen and ink with color pencil.


I would love you know what you, dear readers, feel about the autumn season.  What words best describe your feelings, memories, and attitudes toward the months where Eleanor Averitt, in her poem “November Day” writes,

Old haggard wind has

  plucked the trees

Like pheasants, held

  between her knees.

In rows she hangs them,

  bare and neat,

Their brilliant plumage at her feet.

from  Dunning, Stephen, Edward Lueders, et al, and Hugh Smith. Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle…and other modern verses. New York: Lothrop, Lee & Shepard Co., Inc., 1967. Print.
