Autumn hat & poetry

Greetings and welcome.

The Fall equinox begins today, Thursday, September 22, 2022, at 9:04 P.M. EDT in the Northern Hemisphere. Before it commits to earlier sunsets, the Fall equinox provides an equal amount of day and evening light.

We celebrate the arrival of Fall with a Hattingdon hat in colours of the season.

Autumn Hattingdon 2022

Now, how about some poetry to get us in the mood? It is really lovely.

Poetry

Whim Wood

by Katherine Towers

into the coppery halls
of beech and intricate oak
to be close to the trees
as they whisper together
let fall their leaves

Autumn Fires

by Robert Louis Stevenson

In the other gardens
And all up in the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over,
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!

Nothing Gold Can Stay

by Robert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.


We love seeing you here. Thank you for spending time with us.
