Fall Out II

Don't you get the feeling that trees somehow know how beautiful they are this time of year? It is as if they understand that this is their big fashion statement of the year...especially maples. fcp

"The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on."

- Emily Dickinson
