Another favorite of mine is Laura Ingalls Wilder. I loved her books as a child and read them to my children when they were small. Here is a poem of hers describing this glorious season.
“I strolled today down a woodland path –
A crow cawed loudly and flew away.
The sky was blue and the clouds were gold
And drifted before me fold on fold;
The leaves were yellow and red and brown
And patter, patter the nuts fell down,
On this beautiful, golden autumn day.
A squirrel was storing his winter hoard,
The world was pleasant; I lingered long,
The brown quails rose with a sudden whirr
And a little bundle, of eyes and fur,
Took shape of a rabbit and leaped away.
A little chipmunk came out to play
And the autumn breeze sang a wonder song.”
-Laura Ingalls Wilder
