AUTUMN'S BOUNTY
In seed time...learn,
In harvest...teach,
In winter...enjoy.
-- William Blake
Give me the end of the year an' its fun, when most of the plannin' an' toilin' is done;
Bring all the wanderers home to the nest, let me sit down with the ones I love best,
Hear the old voices still ringin' with song, see the old faces unblemished by wrong.
-- Edgar A. Guest
Harvest home, harvest home!  We've plowed, we've sowed,
We've reaped, we've mowed, and brought safe home every load.
-- Harvest Home Song, "Lore of the Harvest"

Everybody's 12 years old in an apple orchard.  
-- Rachael Ray
A seed hidden in the heart of an apple is an orchard invisible.
-- Welsh Proverb
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I am the ancient Apple Queen, as once I was, so am I now.
For evermore a hope unseen, betwixt the blossom and the bough.
Ah, where's the river's hidden Gold!  And where the windy grave of Troy?
Yet, come I, as I came of old, from out the heart of summer's joy.
-- William Morris, "Pomona"
November comes, November goes, with the last red berries and the first white snows.
The fires burn and the kettles sing, and earth sinks to rest until next spring.
-- Clyde Watson
Corn and grain, corn and grain,
All that falls shall rise again.
-- Author Unknown

Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.
-- Robert Louis Stevenson
