O me au­tumn is glo­ri­ous, bril­liant, de­fi­ant, but not me­lan­choly. There is a grandeur in the trees in their au­tum­nal leaves that ban­ishes the thought of de­cay, and tells only of a task well done. All the spring and sum­mer through they did their work of shel­ter­ing the nest­ing birds, and cast­ing shad­ows on the grass for the com­fort of man and beast. Now the nests of spring are empty; nestlings have left the safe pro­tec­tion of the thick leaves, and, grown to full es­tate, have long since winged their way into the wider world.
