This is from my 3-rd grade 语文 book (there's a version here):
I translate this to:
It's currently Golden Autumn. We already see her diverse (缤纷的) colors (色彩), heard her wonderful (美妙的) sounds (声音), [and] shared (分享了) the joy (欢乐) she provides us (带给我们的).
I think I've managed to understand it correctly, but it looks like "Golden Autumn" (金秋时节) is being referred to using the female pronoun 她 (instead of "it" 它), perhaps for poetic reasons, or perhaps this is normal. I just want to check this.
Question: Is Autumn being referred to by the female pronoun 她? Is this normal?
