Welcome Fall . . .


I love Fall, and everything that comes with it! The sights and sounds, the smells and the taste of Fall are finally here . . . officially!  This was one of my favorite childhood songs, it is sung to the tune of, Hush Little Baby.

Come, Little Leaves
by George Cooper

"Come, little leaves,"
Said the wind one day,
"Come to the meadows
With me and play;
Put on your dresses
Of red and gold,
For summer is past,
And the days grow cold."

Soon as the leaves
Heard the wind's loud call,
Down they came fluttering,
One and all.
Over the meadows
They danced and flew,
All singing the soft
Little songs they knew.

Hugs,

  5. I love that little song; thanks for sharing it. I do have to admit that I love fall too and there are diffidently different emotions with the changing seasons. I love Christmas time but I am not ready to start into it all.
    Blessings and hugs for you dear friend.

  6. Me too - LOVE FALL. Yesterday I laid (I always feel like a chicken when I write this word.....) under our tree, now turning red, to get a picture and had a dead camera battery. Never did get the picture...maybe today.

  7. Hi Barbara. Love your little poem. Leaves . . . they are the price we pay for having shade in the summer! That's what I tell myself when I'm raking leaves in August. Yep - Fall starts here in August. I bought a pumpkin today and it's sitting in the Florida room smiling at me!! Every season has a special place but I must admit - I'm a summer girl! Happy day, girlfriend. Hugz!

  8. Sweet Barb, I love that poem. I've pretty much forgotten what day it is. Things are snowballing here with selling the house. I guess that's a good thing. Happy fall to you!
