What I love about fall is the sound of crickets. Sometimes they are difficult to seebut oh such a lovely and mysterious sound they play. It’s the sound of the season changing.

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, 
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

No bird soars

with his own wings.

it sings because it has a song. - Maya Angelou
