Beautiful Autumn Is Here, but Winter Is Coming
Autumn is a beautiful time of year. Yes, it’s always sad that summer is over, but that doesn’t mean fall isn’t worthy of the same affection. The leaves change from green to an incredible display of vibrant colours, just as your cheeks get a little ruddy from the colder weather.
Fall is a time of preparation for rebirth. Bears fatten up for the long winter hibernation, squirrels stockpile acorns, and trees shed their leaves to make themselves heartier for the coming cold. When nature reawakens in Spring, this long rest will have served them well.
So get comfortable, as curling up by the fire with a hot cup of chocolate, here are some wintery words to help you celebrate the next season.
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is time for home.”
– Edith Sitwell
“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it; the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.”
– Andrew Wyeth
“The fire is winter’s fruit.”
– Arabian Proverb
“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.”
– Hal Borland
“The colour of springtime is flowers; the colour of winter is in our imagination.”
– Terri Guillemets
