Obligatory Autumn Post

image

"Come, little leaves,"
Said the wind one day,
"Come over the meadows
With me, and play;
Put on your dresses
Of red and gold;
For summer is gone,
And the days grow cold."


Soon as the leaves
Heard the wind's loud call,
Down they came fluttering,
One and all;
Over the meadows
They danced and flew,
Singing the soft
Little songs they knew.

It’s almost a requirement to have an Ode to Autumn post, isn’t it?  I mean, autumn is beautiful with the colors and golden sunlight, but the main thing is (at least to me) is that you know it’s only going to last such a SHORT time before it’s ugly, miserable, freezing, wet, winter—so you feel you must capture, capture, capture while it lasts . So.  Here are my Ode to Autumn pictures (okay, and a few of my children are in the mix too).  And by the way, this post is too long, but I’m incapable of shortening it.
