Welcome Fall

Now shatter’d shades let me attend,
Reflecting look on their decline,
Where pattering leaves confess their end,
In sighing flutterings hinting mine.

For every leaf, that twirls the breeze,
May useful hints and lessons give;
The falling leaves and fading trees
Will teach and caution us to live

From "Autumn" by John Clare 1821


  1. Fall is so beautiful, but it always seems such a sad time, too. Everything coming to an end, I suppose, just waiting to be blanketed by the snows of Winter.

  2. Nice photo and really like the poem, Marti. Waiting for your next post.
