What The Dickins: A Tale Of Edinburgh City

20 Photos of Autumn in Edinburgh

Autumn leaves

Listen. .
With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp’d, break from the trees
And fall.

November Night by Adelaide Crapsey (1878 – 1914)

This simple yet beautiful piece of poetry is written by American poet Adelaide Crapsey and perfectly describes autumn (or should we say “fall”) in only five lines. Crapsey isn’t the most famous poet out there, but she did leave a poetic legacy in the form of the cinquain – a five-lined un-rhymed poem modelled on the Japanese Haiku. What’s your favourite autumn poem?

Edinburgh is pretty throughout the seasons but there is just something special, almost spiritual about autumn. We’ve been out and about photographing the wonderful colour extravaganza that nature puts on for us, and we’re just going to let the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy our tour of autumnal Edinburgh!
