First Day of Fall!

Today is the first day of Fall!  How I love this time of year!!  I love the crisp morning air, the leaves beginning to change, going to flea markets, Texas State Fair, pumpkin patches, Starbucks for a pumpkin latte', nature walks and being on the cusp of the holidays...

To celebrate fall I want to share this poem:

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.

Goodbye, 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.

I Lasso the beauty of FALL!
