Missouri Wine Country

"On such a day each road is planned
To lead to some enchanted land;
Each turning meets expectancy.
The signs I read on every hand.
I know by autumn's wizardry
On such a day the world can be
Only a great glad dream for me--
Only a great glad dream for me!"
                          -   Eleanor Myers Jewett, An Autumn Day

"Autumn is the eternal corrective. 
It is ripeness and color and a time of maturity; 
                    but it is also breadth, and depth, and distance.  
What man can stand with autumn on a hilltop
 and fail to see the span of his world 
and the meaning of the rolling hills 
           that reach to the far horizon?-   Hal Borland
