"The sweet calm sunshine of October, now
    Warms the low spot; upon its grassy mold
The purple oak-leaf falls; the birchen bough
    drops its bright spoil like arrow-heads of gold."

 --William Cullen Bryant


  1. This could be a backyard scene from my youth. But today, it is pouring rain here. God bless you. Oh, and thank you for the welcome!

  2. The imagery in this is quite simply fantastic! There is so much beauty in this world, and it feels wonderful to sit back and appreciate it.

  3. You are most welcome, H. Heide, and thank you very much for writing such nice words. Your backyard memories must be beautiful ones indeed! And thank you, too, Oddyoddy013, for your very nice comments. Almighty God has given us so much beauty that we could scarcely see it all in several lifetimes; but that is what we will do in Heaven, God willing: gaze upon Beauty forever without end. May God richly bless you both, and your loved ones, too.
