After lunch in the Trelissick cafe with a lovely choir friend, I went for a delightful walk around the gardens in the warmth of late Autumn sunshine. Please join me in the gallery. I am enjoying the macro feature on my new camera – to see the detail, please click on any photo and zoom in, especially on the enormous bee!
I searched for a new, to me, poem about Autumn and came across this one which suited today’s experience perfectly. I hope you enjoy it too.
A Day In Autumn – by Ronald Stuart Thomas
It will not always be like this,
The air windless, a few last
Leaves adding their decoration
To the trees’ shoulders, braiding the cuffs
Of the boughs with gold; a bird preening
In the lawn’s mirror. Having looked up
From the day’s chores, pause a minute,
Let the mind take its photograph
Of the bright scene, something to wear
Against the heart in the long cold.
