Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness ….


Ode to Autumn by  John Keats (1795-1821) was thought to have been written by Keats after he wrote to a letter to Reynolds, in September 1819.

In his letter he says: “How beautiful the season is now. How fine the air– a temperate sharpness about it. Really without joking, chaste weather–Dian skies. I never liked stubble fields so much as now—aye, better than the chilly green of spring. Somehow a stubble plain looks warm, in the same way some pictures look warm. This struck me so much in my Sunday’s walk that I composed upon it.”

From poetical works of John Keats, ed. H. Buxton Forman, Crowell publ.1895

Black eyed Susans, sticky asters, sedum, Japanese Anemones and golden rod are  buffeted by the wind under a crisp blue sky. Dill and American beautyberry provide seeds and berries.

                                                         Until they think warm days will never cease..”
