My fireplace with the tree posed beside it.

A little bit of heaven:
sitting in front of the fireplace with hubby reading,
grandkids listening with rapt faces,
and pets snuggled close.

Enjoy the poem below:
AUTUMN SONG

Let's go down the road together, you and I,
Let's go down the road together,
Through the vivid autumn weather;
Let's go down the road together when the red leaves fly.

Let's go searching, searching after
Joy and mirth and love and laughter --
Let's go down the road together, you and I.
Let's go hunting for adventure, you and I,
For the romance we are knowing
Waits for us, alive and glowing,
For the romance that has always passed us by.
Let's have done with tears and sighing,
What if summer-time IS dying?


Let's go hunting for adventure, you and I.
Let's go down the road together, you and I --
And if you are frightened lest you
Weary grow, my arms will rest you,
As we take the road together when the red leaves fly.
Springtime is the time for mating?
Ah, a deeper love is waiting
Down the autumn road that calls us, you and I!
--Margaret E. Sangster

Autumn Blessings!
