Letting Go A  Fall  Poem    

 

In Fall,  you  get  this  sort  of  feeling,   That  everything  is  changing,  not  in  a  way  that     Is  bad  or  especially  great,  but  of     Things  becoming  stranger   Yet  at  the  same  time  it’s  okay   Because  Fall  is  one  of  the  seasons     That  brings  comfort,  love,  and  belonging   You  know  your  place  in  the  world  almost   But  you  are  still  discovering  new  leaves   Growing  and  developing  who  you  are     It’s  the  time  of  year  when  you  let  go  of  trying  to     Wear  the  same  color  everyone  else  wears,     And  you  let  your  true  colors  show   When  you  sit  by  the  crackling  fire   With  a  cup  of  hot  apple  cider   Thinking  deeply  or  reading  a  romantic  book   As  the  leaves  fall  from  the  trees,     You  realize  it’s  time  to  let  go  of  things  past   And  continue  on  with  life  and  accept  that     Everything  happens  for  a  reason   Things  die,  new  things  are  born  and  you  learn   That  life  is  always  changing  and     The  only  thing  that  is  constant  is  change         -­A  Girl’s  Point  of  View  


Why Does Fall Have Two Names? —or should I say “autumn?” How did autumn become the only season with two names?

Before it was autumn and fall, it was harvest. While the modern names of winter and summer have been around for more than 1,000 years, the names of fall and spring are more recent—and less constant. This is partly because the two seasons were long viewed as secondary to summer and winter. As late as the 18th century, English speakers were less likely to think of the year as having four seasons, focusing instead on the coldest and warmest portions of the year. Even when they spoke of fall, they couldn’t agree when, exactly, it took place. In the 17th and 18th centuries, dictionaries by both Thomas Blount and Samuel Johnson noted that some thought that fall began in August and ended in November, while others contested that it began in September (at the equinox) and ended in December (with the solstice). “Both spring and autumn used to go by different names. In the 12th and 13th

centuries, spring was called lent or lenten, while fall was called harvest. In the 14th century things got a little chaotic. Lenten disappeared around the beginning of the 1300s, and the later lent similarly vanished only a few decades later. (It survives, of course, as the name for a religious observance.) By the end of the 14th century there was no firm word for springtime: People referred to it as part of summer, they used Latin (ver) or French (primetemps), or they just made up new phrases. Harvest as a word to mean not just “a time of reaping” but also, even for city folk, “the third season of the year” lasted longer. But it was joined by autumn —a word borrowed from the French—by the 16th century.” Spring and fall likely gained popularity in conjunction with each other. They each initially appeared in the 16th century as spring of the leaf and fall of the leaf, respectively. The two complemented each other nicely and were soon shortened to the more succinct fall and spring, with the longer phrases disappearing over the next few hundred years. “It’s a bit of a mystery why the superfluous autumn persists while analogous words like primetemps and ver have fallen out of use, but it may have something to do with the Atlantic Ocean. The rise of autumn and the appearance of fall happened around the same time as the British arrival on the American continent, and it’s there that the latter really caught on.” Wickman, Forrest.

An Autumn Meditation

   

As summer  ends  and  winter  comes  there  is  this  in  between  part.     Leaves  slowly  lose  their  summer  green,  turning  vibrant  yellows  and  oranges.  The  air   cools  and  crispens.  Rain  begins  to  fall,  giving  the  earth  a  clean,  fresh  smell.  Warm   clothes  come  out  of  storage,  and  hot  chocolate  becomes  a  nightly  routine.  You  can   finally  wear  warm  clothes  to  school  and  not  worry  about  being  hot  halfway  through  the   day.  Some  people  call  it  fall,  others  know  it  as  autumn,  and  to  the  rare  extreme,   pumpkin  spice  latte  season.  To  all  it  is  the  true  end  of  summer  and  beginning  of  winter.       ~  Photograph  &  Meditation  by  Jerica  Herman
