Summer begins to have the look...

Summer begins to have the look
Peruser of enchanting Book
Reluctantly but sure perceives
A gain upon the backward leaves --

Pin It

Autumn begins to be inferred
By millinery of the cloud...

...Or deeper color in the shawl
That wraps the everlasting hill.

The eye begins its avarice
A meditation chastens speech
Some Dyer of a distant tree
Resumes his gaudy industry.

Conclusion is the course of All
At most to be perennial...

...And then elude stability
Recalls to immortality.

Emily Dickenson

    Oh how very beautiful Anita....both your gorgeous deck/porch and the poem...the backdrop is always breathtaking!!!

  2. This is so beautiful! I love your pretty corner for a fall tea or coffee to warm the body on a cool day. I would really enjoy sitting there and visiting. Blessings, Pam

  3. Such a cozy spot on your back porch, Anita! Beautiful, inviting, and welcoming to come and sit awhile.

    ANY post you do on your deck makes me swoon and feel nostalgic, missing my old deck:) The poem is beautiful and so is your deck all dressed up for Fall!

  5. What a beautiful display of fall's colors, textures, and patterns! I especially love the goldenrod in the basket along with the gourds. I often drive by a large field of goldenrod as I depart our neighborhood, and it's always a sure sign to me that fall is on the horizon.

    As much as I enjoyed this past summer, I am ready for fall. As I type this, we have exactly one hour and 9 minutes left of summer. I want to go outside and do something crazy like run around in a bathing suit! :-)

    Beautiful display, Anita! Happy Fall to you and yours!!!

  6. Lovely...everything, the words, the pictures, the mood.

    Such a beautiful and sweet spot Anita and the poem is perfect. It captures exactly how this season makes me feel and that mix of emotions. Love it all!

  8. What a perfect place for "Fall Musings"!!! :) ... Just beautiful

  9. ED was certainly an original, wasn't she? A wonderful photo essay, thank you!
