Hal Borland   Category:

Hal Borland   Category:

Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night.
Hal Borland   Category:

Summer is a promissory note signed in June, its long days spent and gone before you know it, and due to be repaid next January.
Hal Borland   Category:

The ultimate wisdom which deals with beginnings, remains locked in a seed. There it lies, the simplest fact of the universe and at the same time the one which calls faith rather than reason.
Hal Borland   Category:

You can't be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.
