Come o'er the meadows and we will play.
Put on your dresses scarlet and gold,
For summer is gone and the days grow cold."
~ From a children's song of the 1880's
October arrived and in our neighborhood it came with grey skies, a bit of rain and blustery winds. Crunchy leaves swirl into piles everywhere.
We're not complaining -- for it makes me think of fireplaces, hot apple crisp, and cozy nooks replete with afghans for naps or curling up with a good book -- or even a good husband.
I found a lovely piano piece entitled Leaves in the Wind. Written by composer Isaac Shepard, it seems a perfect fit for this Autumn afternoon.
Wishing you glimpses of beauty in every leaf....
