Hello Old Friend

Happy Autumn, friends…

Welcome to Leisure Lane.  Sip your tea or coffee while you settle into Autumn with a song about my favorite season.  Some of my ‘poems’ are songs, but since you can’t here the melody, you’re welcome to make up one of your own or simply read it like a poem.  Which ever way you read it, I hope you enjoy it, and it makes you smile.  I’ll be posting more through the autumn because, well, “I’ve gotta million of ’em”.

Hello, Old Friend 
(an Autumn song)

Hello, old friend, you’re here again.
My heart is warm with cheer.
The leaves are turning, my heart is burning
With love for this time of year.

 Cool breezes chill the air,
Apple crisp baked with care;
Cider is warming, hay rides are charming;
Pumpkins at the fair.

 Hello, old friend, you’re here again.
Let me light a fire;
Find a book, sit in a nook,
And pass away the hour.

 Old town clocks together chime,
Telling us the hour’s time;
Sound more clear when you are here,
Like a child’s rhyme.

 Hello, Autumn, my old friend.
I’m so glad you’re here again.
Please tarry long, where you belong,
Let my heart be your domain.

    oooh what a beautiful painting you made, marianne! lovely poem too, it reminds me of a song from cat steven’s morning has broken or songs from simon and garfunkle, i mean i dont know why while im reading your poem, the melody that comes into my head is the tune out of the songs from those two singers 🙂 just beautiful, serene and really really touching my heart! you’re so creative and talented as always, Marianne!

    Your poem is charming, Marianne. Fall is in full swing here and I enjoyed your fitting words/song as I remembered the beautiful sunrise I saw this morning on my way to work. Oh, and you don’t have to sand with the Annie Sloan chalk paint. I have some because I won a give away. It’s kinda pricey at about $34/quart but it really goes far. I did two pretty good size pieces of furniture and I still have some left. And you can water it down to stretch it even further. It comes in lots of pretty colors. I don’t know what shipping would be. Loved my visit to Leisure Lane tonight and now it’s off to dreamland. Stay well.
    xo … Lynn
