|MORNING AFTER AUTUMNAL EQUINOX|
A CREATIVE HARBOR
SO THIS IS AUTUMN
by W.W. West
Now far and near on field and hill
We watch the death of chlorophyll
As earl autumn rushes in
With xanthophyll and carotin.
I hold that ignorance is bliss,
Considering the fact that this
Is how a botanist perceives
The coloring of autumn leaves.
by Emily Dickinson
The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.
Hugs and namaste,
