Queen of Year. November Muse Day


*
When the pumpkins are so yellow
And the vines with grapes abound,
When the melons are so mellow
And the nuts fall to the ground;
When persimmons lose their bitters,
And the apples are so red;
When we love to eat corn fritters
Since the roasting ears have fled;
When vacation days are over
And the children go to school,
They no longer play in clover,
But much learn "Arithmos-rule,"
When weird Hallowe'en's most naughty elves
With gnomes and sprites appear,
While fat Thanksgiving fills the shelves -
'Tis AUTUMN, QUEEN OF YEAR
.

Autumn, Queen of Year
by Winifred Sackville Stoner, Jr.

Join Carolyn at Sweet Home And Garden Chicago for November Muse Day.

  1. When you post, do you have the compose button activated and not the html button? Just a guess.
    I like this poem and photo collage, but that is a big scarey spider.

  3. Thank you Terra. As for the links, I try both ways, and the only way I can make a link work is to post the http..... It was simple until I got a new computer with Windows 7.

  8. Tatyana, I have Windows 7 and the links work. Click Change, and make sure you write in top/text box not the lower/where to box?

    I like my spiders Over There. Couldn't bear to have a (fake) spider that size ON my foot ;>)

  9. A very pretty poem! You've got some very pretty fall color there, I love Japanese Maples. I also just love the tree with lichen and moss.

  10. Thank you Donna! This is the only type of spiders that I can tolerate on my leg!
    Nutty Gnome and Eileen, thank you! I prefer it to grow on trees, not on my lawn!
    Thank you Shirley! Making collages can be addictive. It's like puzzles.

  17. Lovely collages, Tatyana--they certainly do depict November as the queen of the year! Love those red shoes!

  18. Hi Tatyana, i've been out for 10 days, missed some of your posts so have to review. I always love collages because i don't know yet how to do them. That spider web is so clear, which i've been trying with a 150mm but still can't get it close up, haha! But on a foot, that i still can't try. The poem is lovely and very fitted here. BTW, i also love your sunrise photo of the day, i wish you can view my post last week in Oct, where i have lots of sky shots. Thanks, your posts always inspire me what to do something next!

  21. I loved looking at your last couple of posts. A side of life that doesn't really exist in the UK or here in Italy. We've all started to 'do' Hallowen, but in a very commercial way and certainly not with such enthusiasm. thanks for visiting my garden too. Christina
