Photo Fridays: Autumn Leaves



Autumn is a special time in the year and it is so fleeting. The leaves are just beautiful—I want to suspend the moment.




Leaves

By Elsie Brady


How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.

At other times, they wildly fly
Until the nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.

Lovely photos and thoughts: wish Autumn (Fall - depending on where one is commenting from!) was not so fleeting, as the colours are so gorgeous.

Just dropped by via the Etsy Seller Success Forum, as I'm currently unashamedly looking for more Followers on my blog (and hopefully visitors to my shop as a result!) You can find us all at www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com. We'd love to see you there. Meanwhile, all the best! Isobel
