Squirrels dance about, busily seeking to fill their winter store. Great flocks of birds wheel around the sky as if unsure which way to fly, until finally, as one, they choose; fair weather friends seeing leaner days ahead and seeking hospitality elsewhere. Emboldened by their departure, the stalwarts of winter emerge; puffing out red breasts against the cold, robins flit from branch to branch.
And in the woods, a riot of colour; a last bright pageant of russet hues. Reds, golds, and browns mingle with evergreens; a final celebration, flags waving then falling to the ground in a multihued carpet; a last revel before the rigours of winter.
Behind closed doors our lives carry on unchanged. Windows are closed, heating turned up against the sudden chill, a growling discontent at added layers before braving the elements.
While nature rejoices in the turn of the seasons, we shut out the world and look forward to an extra hour in bed next Sunday.
