Autumn Mood

I hate to admit it, but autumn is actually here. Day by day the air gets colder, the wind feels more chilling and the colours changes… And up north here in Norway, we are loosing daylight and the summernights with light 24/7 are once again, all gone!

Summer goes by so quickly. I have to pinch my arm to believe it, but it is happening – once again. I love wearing warm clothes, wool, hats, scarfs and mittens, but I am freezing. Always freezing. No matter how much clothes I put on, I am cold from October – May. That is a long time to be cold! I like it warm, actually I like it hot. So warm that you have to wipe your forehead from sweat and the sun feels like it can boil an egg. I must be born on the wrong side of this planet…

Today I captured the beginning of autumn, feeling a little cold – even if the sun was out.


September; by Helen Hunt Jackson

The goldenrod is yellow;
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.

The gentian’s bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusky pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun.

The sedges flaunt their harvest
In every meadow-nook;
And asters by the brookside
Make asters in the brook.

From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes’ sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies.

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather,
And autumn’s best of cheer.
