Beautiful Autumn + A Poem...



Autumn by Albert Laighton ~ 1829-1887

The world puts on its robes of glory now;
The very flowers are tinged with deeper dyes;
The waves are bluer, and the angels pitch
Their shining tents along the sunset skies.

The distant hills are crowned with purple mist;
The days are mellow, and the long, calm nights,
To wondering eyees like weird magicians show
The shifting splendors of the Northern Lights.

The generous earth spreads out her fruitful stores,
And all the fields are decked with ripened sheaves;
While in the woods, at Autumn's rustling step,
The maples blush through all their trembling leaves.



Autumn is here...
What an abundance of loveliness!
Enjoy.

What a brilliant poem with some lovely autumn fashion to go with it. Aren't Autumn days the best, although a little chilly today in London, don't you think, although beautifully sunny. I love squirrels too.That photograph is so sweet Don't know why people don't like them. We have them in our garden, as my husband leaves food out for all the wildlife.
By the way, it's so lovely to see the Union Jack against your name on my comments...there aren't that many U.K. bloggers, are there ?
