Gold, Wanderlust, Strength, and Loyalty

Morning sunshine on autumn trees with frost covered grass

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. ~J.R.R. Tolkien

October’s foliage yellows with his cold:
In rattling showers dark November’s rain,
From every stormy cloud, descends again,
Till keen December’s snows close up the year again.
~John Ruskin
