When I was a child, in about grade 5, we had to memorize the poem 'September' by Helen Hunt Jackson. I still remember lines from it today. Autumn is my favourite time of the year and the last verse of her poem expresses why:
By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer's best of weather
And autumn's best of cheer
Take a few minutes to enjoy the images that express how I feel about autumn.
