Autumn Still

Hello friends,

Usually after Thanksgiving (and sometimes before) everyone is in a rush for Christmas.  I love Christmas, too, but it’s still autumn, and I’d like to slowly take it in and savor every moment.  So today I’d like to share two things I created.

The first is the basket full of faux autumn leaves I made many years ago.  It’s been tucked away for quite a few years.  But this year I decided to grace my table with it again.  I think it truly captures the aura of fall – especially on the pretty pashmina I recently purchased.

I’d also like to share a song I wrote about autumn.  I’m not a musician so I usually forget the melody with which I originally wrote the words.  But I like the message nevertheless, and perhaps one day I’ll just put another melody to it, or I’ll recollect the original.

Autumn…A Wonderful Time Of Year

 Autumn is a wonderful time of year…
When the air turns crisp and cool,
And yellow buses head off to school
Autumn is a wonderful time of year.

 Autumn is a wonderful time of year…
When the leaves turn gold and red,
And it’s early off to bed
Autumn is a wonderful time of year.

 Apple crisp is baking,
Children busy raking…piles of leaves to jump in
Hip Hooray!

 Pumpkins at the front door,
Hot cider from the town store…with cinnamon to warm
On a chilly day.

 Autumn is a wonderful time of year…
When Jack Frost comes to call
In an early morning Fall.
Autumn is a wonderful time of year.

 Autumn is a wonderful time of year…
When the sun is earlier rising,
And a brisk walk is enticing
Autumn is a wonderful time of year.

 Father watching football,
Children playing tackle…Mother baking pies
For company.

 Autumn please don’t hurry,
Please linger, don’t you scurry…so quickly this time
Away from me.

 Autumn is a wonderful time of year…
When our hearts are set aglow,
With giving thanks for those we know.
Autumn is a wonderful time of year.

 Autumn is a wonderful time of year…
When learning 1 + 1 is 2,
And that I’m happy I have you

Autumn is a wonderful time~~~~

Autumn is a wonderful time~~~~

Autumn is a wonderful time of year~~~

Thank you for strolling by Leisure Lane.  I am joining Pink Saturday with our host, Beverly, from How Sweet the Sound.  Until next time, may happy days abound!

    Hi Mariann! What a lovely table centerpiece – made with love by your hands, I’m sure. And, your song was filled with the imagery of the season! Yes, the Autumn-scape is lovely and I look forward to decking the halls with it each September – and then decking for Christmas on Black Friday – let everyone else push and shove for the sales. I’ll get what I need by and by. Holiday preparation in my home are my priority. Glad you liked my sneak peak – and glad you’re enjoying my Thanksgiving Story Series.
    Joy!

    Happy Pink Saturday! Thanks for stopping by. (Another WordPress blog, yay!) Love your basket of fall leaves and the pashmina. And, I agree with your thoughts on not rushing fall. I was pondering that myself the other day. Seems we’re so ready to jump from one holiday to the next . . . what happened to moving passionately and deliberately? Your song is wonderful and from its cadence, I drew a melody in reading it. Enjoyed my visit! Thanks, Jenn
