Autumn arrives with a gold-tinged invitation
to slow down and breathe deeply.
Look, the trees
their own bodies
are giving off the rich
fragrance of cinnamon
~ Mary Oliver
In this season of radiance and release,
we gather again for another season of Evensong,
a time apart to listen, to sing, to be still.
Settle into the grace of Autumn –
a celebration of ever slanting light and brilliant colour;
a time to prepare for the longer nights,
a quiet time of reflection.
