It's turning chilly! And, the pumpkin patch down the road is open (and busy).
What is your favorite work of literature about frost and pumpkins? Or, do you like to read more about scarecrows (the Wizard of Oz)? Which works have you read that made you think about fall, as the end of the year approaches?
In Frost at Midnight, Samuel Taylor Coleridge writes:
"The Frost performs its secret ministry,
Unhelped by any wind. The owlet's cry
Came loud, -and hark, again! loud as before.
The inmates of my cottage, all at rest,
Have left me to that solitude, which suits
Abstruser musings: save that at my side
My cradled infant slumbers peacefully."
