MERRY AUTUMN DAYS…

‘Tis pleasant on a fine spring morn

To see the buds expand; 

‘Tis pleasant in the summer time

To see the fruitful land;

‘Tis pleasant on a winter’s night

To sit around the blaze,

But what are joys like these, my boys,

To merry autumn days

We hail the merry autumn days,

When leaves are turning red;

Because they’re far more beautiful 

Than anyone has said,

We hail the merry harvest time,

The gayest of the year;

The time of rich and bounteous crops,

Rejoicing and good cheer.

  5. The poem is well illustrated by your photos Denise. I agree with the dedication. The farmers work hard all the time in all weathers to keep us supplied with food and I'm thankful also for the key workers who keep the supply chain going.

    Your photos are perfect for this poem. My favorite being the farmer's columbine out in the field.
