Autumn


 Crowned with the sickle, and the wheaten sheaf,
 ... Autumn nodding o'er the yellow plain,
 Comes jovial on.

James Thomson, Autumn



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...

Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ode to the West Wind



A common grayness silvers everything....
Days decrease,
And Autumn grows, autumn in everything.

Robert Browning, Andrea del Sarto








More exquisite than any other is the autumn rose.

Theodore Agrippa d'Aubigne, Les Tragiques. Les Faux.






An elegant sufficiency, content,
 Retirement, rural quiet, friendship, books.

James Thomson, Autumn

Wishing you many beautiful Autumn days!
Thanks for stopping by! Ciao! for now!

  8. I love all your pieces that have the brown and various color print on them. Might I inquire what pattern they are? I have only seen one other item that has the brown print on it and it's my Grandmothers large oval Thanksgiving turkey platter. Many thanks in advance!
