If autumn were a person, I think they would be an older brother or sister. Autumn has this feeling of sophistication and maturity. Its the most colourful and expressive, but also lends itself to contemplation. Autumn is like a wise adult. They’re the one you go to for advice. The one who listens to your problems without interrupting, offering advice only if you ask it. The one who holds their tongue until they know both sides of the story. The one who doesn’t judge. But at the same time, autumn still feels warm, friendly, and approachable.
On such a day each road is planned to lead to some enchanted land; Each turning meets expectancy. The signs I read on every hand. I know by autumn’s wizardry on such a day the world can be only a great glad dream for me – Only a great glad dream for me!
