Fall Leaves

After today's rain, wind, and snow, many of the leaves have fallen, but here are two pictures, the first from here in Chicago before the snow, and the second from Gainesville, Florida.  Click on the photos to view them full sized.

Fall, Leaves, Fall

Emily Brontë 

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night's decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
