Autumn Verse Printable

Did you see this printable when I shared it over at Live Creatively Inspired last month?  I meant to schedule it here for the last day of September, so you could download it and print it and be ready for the month…but I forgot. So here it is today, and if you send it to Costco online, you can pick it up in a hour…just enough time to find a frame and pick a spot in your house to hang it!

I first read this verse from George Cooper’s poem, “October’s Party,” ‘lo these many years ago, and each fall, as I see the leaves start their brilliantly colored twirling, it comes to mind. I’m always impressed that a poem written in the 1890’s still sounds so perfect in today’s techno-crazy world. It reminds us to appreciate the beauty of nature, and the celebration of the changing of the seasons, I think.

I decided to make a printable this year, and then, because I liked both backgrounds, I thought I’d included links to print either. Each time I walk past, the thought of leaves at a party brings a smile to my face. Cedar-ChaosServedDailyChalkboard-ChaosServedDaily

Simply click on the image below to download it…and enjoy!


These are an 11×14 format, and I printed mine at Costco for about $3 for just the print. You can also get it printed on posterboard for around ten dollars, if you don’t plan to frame it, or just want a posterboard. They would also print as an 5×7 or 8×10 without losing anything.

Enjoy it!

  1. I love this poem. I printed one for me and one for my mom. Now, I need to find something for each of the seasons so that I can leave the nice frame up (on my nearly empty walls) all year :)

  2. I love it! I sure miss reading 19th century poetry. I really need to pick it up again. And this one is perfect for me! Thanks for sharing. :)

I love reading your comments, and I'll very likely reply!
