A Poem

"Come little leaves,"
Said the wind one day.
"Come down to the meadow
And we shall play.
Put on your dresses  
Of red and gold,
For summer is past
And the days grow cold."

Dancing and leaping 
The leaves went along,
Until winter called them
To end their sweet song.
Soon, fast asleep
In their earthly beds
The snow lay a coverlet
Over their heads.

~Author Unknown~

Nope, not ready for snow but I am always so in awe of those Fall colors.  These are photos I took and shared a few years ago.

I love autumn colours but I hate the thought of it arriving as I hate winter so much!
Beautiful verse.
Sorry I have not visited for so long, not only busy but I have had no computer for a month! Mine died. Diane

Rose said...

I love that poem...and I love autumn and all the glorious color. But not ready for winter here either. And I have dreamed twice that it snowed here with the trees still green!

Barb said...

I see you have fall in your world, too, Denise. I love your texture on the photos. Enjoy more of your fall as I move into winter!

I'm looking forward to Fall here but it will be a few weeks yet.

I love Fall -- I just wish it lasted longer (of course now that we're old and retired our goal is to skip the season that follows it.)

I loved the poem. Thanks for sharing it. I love seeing the leaves change color. I hope to be able to take a ride to enjoy the views.

I love the autumn colors too, and just the feel of autumn- it's so refreshing! I enjoyed the lovely poem and the photos as well. Have a lovely week!

Your first picture and header are gorgeous!!! And I love the cute poem!

Linda Kay said...

Fun little poem to share with us! And the colors are beautiful. I see you have changed your title picture.

Oh Denise I am so envious. There are so few deciduous trees in Perth that we seldom see autumn colours. I remember holidaying in New Zealand years ago during autumn and the colours were everywhere and so beautiful.
Of course we don't have snow either so such a different world down under.
That poem is beautiful too.
We, I think, are heading for a very hot summer. Not a nice thought.

Marie said...

A very sweet Autumn poem! Pretty leaves!

Beautiful autumn colour and a nice little verse too. Lovely.

I can see, you have the autumn, too. I love autumn, but the sunny autumn, not raining, cold, cloudily like we have today.
I was really happy for your wonderful comment. Thank you from my heart up.

All boats are lifted out of the water gradually during October, and then it takes several months before the spring, perhaps March-May, they will be put back waters .. And in between is a lot of snow :(

Sandra said...

your photos are wonderful and I read the poem out loud to myself.. love it

EG CameraGirl said...

I really like your leaf shots, Denise. Both of them!
