"There is a harmony in autumn, and a lustre in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen,
 as if it could not be, as if it had not been!" ― Percy Bysshe Shelley

"The gilding of the Indian summer mellowed the pastures far and wide.  
The russet woods stood ripe to be stripped, but were yet full of leaf.  The purple of heath-bloom, faded but not withered, tinged the hills...  Fieldhead gardens bore the seal of gentle decay; ... its time of flowers and even of fruit was over."  
-- Charlotte Bronte

"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn." - Emily Dickinson
