I am confident that everyone has heard the following from a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson:

"In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love."

Today I focus on the Fall Season.  I subscribe to several publications and as they arrived recently I noted a common concept in the covers.

This is the October-December issue of
Portals of Prayer published by Concordia Publishing
House.  It is used for daily devotions.  The

 The above publication is published by the Photographic Society of America (PSA).  The cover photo was taken by Tom Griffithe and is entitled "Fall Woods."  Tom resides in Anaheim Hills, California.  This is the October 2013 issue of the PSA Journal

This is the August - September issue of "Our Iowa" magazine.  It is published in Iowa by "Two Men and a magazine."  The following is a quote "About Our Cover...."

"IOWA has 86 state parks, 10 state forest, and numerous county and municipal parks...most with trails like this one in Lake Darling State Park near Brighton iviting you to "take a hike".

"There's no better time to take in the beauty of our parks then under a canopy of colorful leaves on a mellow autumn afternoon.  See you on the trail!"  Cover Photo by Joseph Stanski.  

As I conclude this Post I want to share this poem with you, which I feel reflects well on the Season of Fall.

Autumn Waltz

Come dance, come play, come join the leaves, 
Caught upon the Autumn breeze, 
Spinning round, cartwheels abound, 
Dancing the Autumn Waltz.

Searching Squirrels take to the floor
Collecting nuts for winter-store, 
Bobbing their tails, climbing with ease, 
Dancing their Autumn Waltz.

Birds on the wing travel by in the sky
O'er land and sea, down south they fly, 
Swooping and soaring in formation, 
Leaving our Autumn Waltz.

Such colourful beauty this season beholds
Shades of green, brown, red and gold, 
Freshness in the morning air, 
This is our Autumn Waltz.
