Songs about Harvest
- After the Harvest - Ray Wylie Hubbard (1999)
- Harvest Moon - Neil Young (1992)
- Shine on Harvest Moon - Marah (2007)
- Autumn is a season followed immediately by looking forward to Spring. (Doug Larson)
- Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. (Albert Camus)
- Autumn is crisp days and cool nights, a time to curl up around the dancing flames and sink into a good book. (John Sinor)
- Autumn...makes a double demand. It asks that we prepare for the future--that we be wise in the ways of garnering and keeping. But it also asks that we learn to let go--to acknowledge the beauty of sparseness. (Bonaro W. Overstreet)
- Autumn truly is what summer pretends to be: the best of all seasons. It is as glorious as summer is tedious; as subtle as summer is obvious; as refreshing as summer is wearying. Autumn seems like paradise. (Gregg Easterbrook)
- Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it. If I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking successive autumns. (George Eliot)
- Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. (Elizabeth Lawrence)
- Fall announces itself very bold, With its leaves of red and gold.
- A fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer's wave goodbye.
- A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air. (Eric Sloane)
- Gracefully, joyfully, colorfully, autumn enters our lives.
- Indian Summer is the dead Summer's soul. (Mary Clemmer)
- I've never known anyone yet who doesn't suffer a certain restlessness when autumn rolls around...We're all eight years old again and anything is possible. (Sue Grafton)
- Red and green, gold and brown, autumn leaves are on the ground.
- Two sounds of autumn are unmistakable, the hurrying rustle of crisp leaves blown along the street or road by a gusty wind, and the gabble of a flock of migrating geese. Both are warnings of chill days ahead, fireside and topcoat weather. (Hal Borland)
- We had gone to bed in summer and we awoke in autumn; for summer passes into autumn in some imaginable point of time, like the turning of a leaf. (Henry David Thoreau)
- We live for the bounties of fall; but the harvest of friendship is blessed above all.
- Why is it that so many of us persist in thinking that autumn is a sad season? Nature has merely fallen asleep, and her dreams must be beautiful if we are to judge by her countenance. (Samuel Taylor Coleridge)
- Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. (Stanley Horowitz)
- Red and Green, Gold and Brown, Autumn Leaves Are on the Ground.
- Put a basket in one lower corner of a page with leaf or apple stickers 'falling' down the side of the page into the basket.
- Arrange the title "Fall 2011" so that it looks like the letters and numbers are falling down the page.
- Draw a large tree shape in the center of the page with branches coming out the sides -- or use a large tree die-cut. Put large apple or leaf die-cuts on the page so they look like they are hanging from or falling from the tree. Use the die-cuts to mat photos or journal. (Allisha Larsen)
- Take closeups of fall foliage. Crop them into leaf shapes to decorate a fall page. Or cut them into letters for a title--either Fall or Autumn.
Leaves in the autumn come tumbling down,
Scarlet and yellow, russet and brown,
Leaves in the garden are swept in a heap,
Trees are undressing ready for sleep.
Leaves are floating softly down;
Some are red and some are brown.
The wind goes swish through the air;
When you look back, there are no leaves there.
Wind Has Shaken Autumn Down
Wind has shaken autumn down,
left it sprawling on the ground,
shawling all in gold below,
Walking through the autumn leaves
Scattered on the ground
Seeing the kaleidoscope
Of colors all around.
Listening to the trees' song
As the wind comes rustling through . . .
May autumn's lovely magic
Bring happiness to you.
Pile them up
Into a pile and
Bed of Leaves
The nicest bed I know
Isn't a bed of soft white snow.
Isn't a bed of cool green grass
After the noisy mowers pass.
Isn't a bed of yellow hay
Making me itch for half a day
But autumn leaves in a pile that high,
Deep and smelling like fall and dry.
That's the bed where I like to lie
And watch the flutters of Fall go by.
An Autumn Day
(Carmen Lagos Signes)
Pumpkins in the cornfields,
Gold among the brown,
Leaves of rust and scarlet
Trembling slowly down;
Birds that travel southward,
Lovely time to play;
Nothing is as pleasant
As an autumn day!
Autumn is the Time
amber leaves swept
down from trees,
Long brisk walks,
fireside talk . . .
a time for these.
Come said the wind to
the leaves one day,
Come over the meadow
with me and play.
Put on your dresses
of scarlet and gold,
For summer is gone
and the nights grow cold.
I am rich today with autumn's gold,
All that my covetous hands can hold;
Frost-painted leaves and goldenrod,
A goldfinch on a milkweed pod,
Huge golden pumpkins in the field
With heaps of corn from a bounteous yield,
Golden apples heavy on the trees
Rivaling those of Hesperides,
Golden rays of balmy sunshine spread
Over all like butter on warm bread;
And the harvest moon will this night unfold
The streams running full of molten gold.
Oh, who could find a dearth of bliss
With autumn glory such as this!
(Elise Natalie Brady)
There's a little twinge of sadness
When Summer disappears,
But Autumn brings new gladness
And joys this time of year.
Leaves Are Falling
Leaves are falling all around--
Red, yellow, orange and brown.
Twirling, swirling to the ground--
Look how many leaves I've found
As I tramp the woods this autumn day
I wonder about others who have passed this way,
Did they look with awe at the beauty I behold,
Or did they only curse the wind and cold?
Did they marvel at the stone draped in moss so gray,
Or was it only a rock that barred their way?
Did their heart leap for joy at that deer on the run,
Or only wish they had brought their gun?
Did they hear the singing of the creek under ice,
Or the hurry scurry of tiny field mice?
Were they stopped in their tracks by the bit of blue
I saw peeping through trees of such marvelous hue?
Did they hear the chatter of the squirrel in the tree
Or the raucous sound of the bluejay's scree?
Many men must have trod this autumn path,
Perhaps in joy or perchance in wrath.
Surely the Red Man as he walked they land
Feeling the Great Spirit so near at hand,
Must've truly felt the earth was blessed
Knowing that now it was all at rest
And so understanding, that again in the spring,
Once more the world, with life, would sing.
So I too, as I walk this trail
To see the cardinal and bright-eyed quail,
Feel that I am greatly blessed--
For here my restless spirit finds rest.
The milkweed pods are breaking,
And the bits of silken down
Float off upon the autumn breeze
Across the meadows brown.
The Mist and All
I like the fall,
The mist and all.
I like the night owl's
And wailing sound
Of wind around.
I like the gray
And bare, dead boughs
That coldly sway
Against my pane.
I like the rain.
I like to sit
And laugh at it--
My cozy fire a bit.
I like the fall--
The mist and all--
I would have to say that
It's my favorite time of year.
The days becoming cooler now,
Fall is finally here.
The leaves are gently falling
And turning awesome shades.
Look around and see the beauty,
That God alone has made.
If you take the time to listen,
You'll hear their laughter ring.
The kid's are rolling in the leaves.
What a happy sound it brings.
This time of year brings thoughtfulness,
On which we can reflect
And time to spend with those we love.
A time to reconnect.
Hold your family close to you,
Autumn's finally here.
So much to be thankful for.
It's my favorite time of year.
Apples in Autumn
It's hard to eat apples,
Without my front teeth,
But apples in autumn
Are really a treat.
The apples are squooshy
Down under my feet,
But those from the tree
Are still crunchy and sweet!

The farmer made a scarecrow
And stuffed it full of straw.
He put it in the cornfield,
but the crows laughed, "Haw-caw."
One crow sat on Scarecrow's hat.
He was not scared at all.
That scarecrow did not scare
A single crow away all fall!

Come Join Us For a Hayride
The wagon waiting by the barn
Is filled with new-mown hay,
So come and join us for a ride
At eventide today.
The harvest moon will lead us
Down the shadowed winding lane;
And as we cuddle close, we'll sing,
An old time refrain.
The chilly breeze at dusk will bring
The scent of ripened wheat.
What other scent has nature made
More delicately sweet!
Beyond the cornstalks piled high
Like wigwams, we will pass
And gather golden pumpkins from the
Frosty meadow grass.
Then dreaming solitary dreams
Of other autumns past
When we were young, we'll reminisce
And head back home at last.
There'll be cider, hot and steamy,
So please say that you will stay,
And come and join us for a ride
At eventide today.

(Helen Hunt Jackson)
The goldenrod is yellow;
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.
The gentian's bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusty pods the milkweed
It's hidden silk has spun.
The sedges flaunt their harvest
In every meadow nook;
And asters by the brook-side
Make asters in the brook.
From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes' sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies.
By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer's best of weather,
and autumn's best of cheer.
When the goldenrod is yellow,
And leaves are turning brown--
Reluctantly the summer goes
In a cloud of thistledown.
When squirrels are harvesting
And birds in flight appear--
By these autumn signs we know
September days are here.

(Georgia B. Adams)
This month the trees begin to make
Their autumn alterations;
October brings the turning leaf
In flaming variations!
Triumphant beauty clothes the hills;
The mountains are ablaze!
There's splendor everywhere to see
These gold autumnal days!
Then one day soon the whistling winds
Will hustle-bustle by,
Sending leaves a-sprawling with
A wistful, wind-swept sigh!
(Winifred C. Marshall)
October is a gypsy queen
In dress of red and gold.
She sleeps beneath the silver moon
When nights are crisp and cold.
The meadows flame with color now,
which once were cool and green.
Wild asters and the goldenrod
Bow low to greet their queen.
When she is tripping through the wood
With song so clear and sweet,
The autumn leaves come sifting down
And rustle 'neath her feet.
October leaves are lovely
They rustle when I run
Sometimes I make a heap
And jump in them for fun!
Autumn leaves float quietly down
And form a carpet on the ground
But when those leaves are stepped upon
Listen for the crackling sound!
When you see leaves in the fields,
Gold and glowing in the sun,
It's time to say goodbye to summer
And hello to autumn fun.
October's the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down--
October is red
And golden and brown.
