The summer season brings summer and romance..... the falling leaves end the dreams of summer, lifeling dreams that Gatsby for a brief season believed were attainable.

Nick's inability to sleep in light of the days events, and his overwhelming need to speak to Gatsby about the things that would never be lend an air of melancholoy to the opening lines of Chapter Eight.
