First Day of Fall, 2021

Today is the first day of fall of this year. Days have been getting cooler, but are still pleasantly warm.

I have seen a few leaves change color. I look at them and know this lingering warmth will soon be a memory.

Fall is also my favorite season. 😀 I enjoy crisp, cool days when all you need is a hoodie to keep warm.

I was reading Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost, which is one my favoriate poems ever. It cycles through all the seasons but I feel like fall is the season it is most concerned with.

Nature’s first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf’s a flower;

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day,

Nothing gold can stay.
