A Fine Autumnal Day

"It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet."
- Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Aaah, I just read this aloud to The Maven as she has gotten hooked on the new tv show based on this. A classic spooky tale! Ann
