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 -

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.

  2. Happy November! Your photos are lovely, and so is the poem. :)

  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.

  4. Thank you Nancy! I always enjoy the poems which you post on your blog!

  5. Gorgeous photos Tatyana. I especially love the moss on the tree in the first collage!

  6. The images are lovely even the big spider. The fall colors sing in the landscape. The poem was a nice touch.

  7. Tatyano, loved the poem, yikes a spider on your foot?


  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.

  11. Thank you Catherine! We have nice autumn colors here in the PNW, don't we?
    Diana, Thank you! I think I, finally, did it right after twisting my brains for a while.

  12. Great poems and photos. Thanks for joining us on Muse Day.

  13. Queen of Year! I like the makes me want to reflect more on the changes that happen during autunm.

  14. Like your poem & photos. It fun to see how the weather changes in the Northern Hemisphere while we are in spring.

  15. Wonderful photos and cute poem :0) Autumn as queen is perfect since her colors are so regal!

  16. You've captured the season...great pix!

  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!

  19. Lovely collages Tatyana! I love the red shoe . . . hopefully whoever is wearing it has no trouble stopping dancing! The fence post is so poetic. Happy November! ;>)

  20. Autumn leaves of red and gold beautiful, Tatyana. Happy November :)

  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

  22. I luv all the Autumn colors of red,gold ,and the oranges. We dont get much of that down here where we live. And the rest of the photos are beautiful. Thanks for stopping by....Julian

  23. Nice! You always put up such great photos.

  24. I love the poem and your beautiful photos to go with it. The weeping japanese maple is amazing. The red shoes I also love, not so much the spider!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
