A Poetic Time of the Year
I gravitate toward warm, fragrant spices during the cool Autumn weather. I made Gingerbread as a treat and topped them with Cinnamon Spiced Sauteed Apples. Then to top that off, I warmed and drizzled the Crabapple Jelly...Now I’m leisurely enjoying a slice while musing on the beauties of Autumn. I love this poem, it beautifully describes the sentiments of this season.
Pale amber sunlight falls across
The reddening October trees,
That hardly sway before a breeze
As soft as summer: summer’s loss
Seems little, dear! on days like these.
Let misty autumn be our part!
The twilight of the year is sweet:
Where shadow and the darkness meet
Our love, a twilight of the heart
Eludes a little time’s deceit.
Are we not better and at home
In dreamful Autumn, we who deem
No harvest joy is worth a dream?
A little while and night shall come,
A little while, then, let us dream.
Beyond the pearled horizons lie
Winter and night: awaiting these
We garner this poor hour of ease,
Until love turn from us and die
Beneath the drear November trees.”
