I Love Fall



I Absolutely Adore Autumn, It is my Favorite Time of Year! Well, I am a Christmas junky, but as far as seasons go, this is my fave! The weather is just right, not hot and not cold, it is gorgeous everywhere you look with color on EVERYTHING, which is probably what gets me since I am addicted to color. The fashion is nice too...I love not worrying about swimsuits or whether or not I have jello-arm syndrome. It is so nice to put on a pair of comfy pants, a simple shirt, and layering on a thin comfy sweater or hoodie. Apple cider, pumpkin pie, the smell of cinnamon, oh how I adore thee! So today I thought I would post two lovely Fall images and a little poem that salutes this wonderful season!



A Fall Song by Ellen Robena Field

Golden and red trees
Nod to the soft breeze,
As it whispers, "Winter is near;"
And the brown nuts fall
At the wind's loud call,
For this is the Fall of the year.

Good-by, sweet flowers!
Through bright Summer hours
You have filled our hearts with cheer
We shall miss you so,
And yet you must go,
For this is the Fall of the year.

Now the days grow cold,
As the year grows old,
And the meadows are brown and sere;
Brave robin redbreast
Has gone from his nest,
For this is the Fall of the year.

I do softly pray
At the close of day,
That the little children, so dear,
May as purely grow
As the fleecy snow
That follows the Fall of the year.

And so it goes...
