AutumnleafI do love autumn. All seasons have their own feeling but autumn is crisp and bright and when the sun shines it is clear and sharp. So many poets have written about autumn, for me some are able to capture its magic better than others. One of my favourites is John Clare. From his poem The Village Minstrel:

The summer-flower has run to seed,
And yellow is the woodland bough;
And every leaf of bush and weed
Is tipt with autumn’s pencil now.

And I do love the varied hue,
And I do love the browning plain;
And I do love each scene to view,
That’s mark’d with beauties of her reign.

Best wishes for a beautiful autumn – Denny Bradbury
