Fall Poems


Change is a measure of time and, in the autumn, time seems speeded up. What was is not and never again will be; what is is change. Edwin Way Teale

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad. Edwin Way Teale

There is no season such delight can bring, as summer, autumn, winter and the spring. William Browne

No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees, No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds - November! Thomas Hood

The stripped and shapely Maple grieves The ghosts of her Departed leaves. The ground is hard, As hard as stone. The year is old, The birds are flown. John Updike

Soon we will plunge ourselves into cold shadows, and all of summer's stunning afternoons will be gone. I already hear the dead thuds of logs below falling on the cobblestones and the lawn. Charles Baudelaire

I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air. Nathaniel Hawthorne

Autumn is the eternal corrective. It is ripeness and color and a time of maturity; but it is also breadth, and depth, and distance. What man can stand with autumn on a hilltop and fail to see the span of his world and the meaning of the rolling hills that reach to the far horizon? Hal Borland

The season for enjoying the fullness of life - partaking of the harvest, sharing the harvest with others, and reinvesting and saving portions of the harvest for yet another season of growth. Denis Waitley

A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air. Eric Sloane

All in November's soaking mist We stand and prune the naked tree, While all our love and interest Seem quenched in the blue-nosed misery. Ruth Pitter

Lest I should be old-fashioned, I'll put a trinket on. Emily Dickinson

I saw old Autumn in the misty morn stand shadowless like silence, listening to silence. Thomas Hood

With time some poems just fall by the wayside. Other poems get better over time with revision, revision, revision. My ladybug poem took 10 minutes to write but was 10 years in the making. Douglas Florian

It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. P D James

Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from falling hands we throw. John Mccrae

Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits. Samuel Butler

There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been! Percy Bysshe Shelley

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn't show. Andrew Wyeth

No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face. John Donne
