As summer turns to autumn, a crisp chill fills the air, and suddenly the landscape is awash in color. This collection of poetry chronicles the splendor of our most brilliant season -- leaf by leaf -- from the golden days of September to the glittering first frosts of early winter.Here, the voices of twenty-five master poets, including William Butler Yeats, Walt Whitman, Mary Oliver, Robert Browning, and Edgar Allan Poe, resonate with the sense of wonder that fall stirs in all of us. Barbara Rogasky's eloquent selections are brought to life by Marc Tauss's lyrical photography, which captures the nuances of the poetry in a series of spectacular images. The result is a spellbinding journey that will delight the senses and bring comfort to the soul.

William Ernest Henley’s four-line excerpt “For earth and sky and air / Are golden everywhere, / And golden with a gold so suave and fine / The looking on it lifts the heart like wine” shows a beautiful old building reflected upside-down in a glass ball, the whole suffused with burnished light.

Perhaps more suitable for the coffee table than as a poetry book for children, this visually impressive collection has a striking cover with glittering, bronze letters, and contains dazzling photographs.
