English: Colton Cross Ancient oaks border the road at this junction between Ralegh's Cross and Monksilver. The dog has chosen the Coleridge Way which follows the footsteps of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge between Nether Stowey and Porlock. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
George Cooper, "October's Party"
The one red leaf, the last of its clan,
That dances as often as dance it can,
Hanging so light, and hanging so high,
On the topmost twig that looks up at the sky.
~Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Even though the last few months of the year can be wet and windy, there is just something about autumn that you just can't help but love!
