Almost Wordless




Autumn Fires

In the other gardens
And all up 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! 


Robert Louis Stevenson

A fitting poem for the tree dressed in one of Mother Nature's tapestry quilts.
