Autumn Winds
Maybe one day an autumn wind will find you in Canada's beautiful capital. Please enter here to see some beautiful panoramas created from pictures taken by my son Allan when he visited Ottawa.

 


 

Listen! the wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!
Humbert Wolfe
 
  Autumn is the eternal corrective. It is ripeness and colour
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 wind-blown leaves turn
Dancing the golden sunlight
Across the tired floor.
Matt Dimmic
 
  Vari-coloured leaves
Waft at wind's gentle prodding--
Autumn rites recur.
Victor Gendrano
 
  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
 
  No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
as I have seen in one autumnal face.
John Donne
 
  Winter is an etching,
spring a watercolor,
summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.
Stanley Horowitz
 
  Swinging on delicate hinges
The autumn leaf
Almost off the stem.
Jack Kerouac
