Autumn in Madeira by Jacek Yerka
Fall is a cozy season, made
to match my patchwork house.
What better spot for cider hot,
doughnuts for man
and holes for mouse?
Fall is a spicy season, round
as pumpkins, brisk as tea.
Red-orange leaves tumble from trees,
crunch crunch and crumble,
all for me.
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” – George Eliot
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.” – Emile Bronte
“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”
– Jim Bishop
