" Let us live for the beauty of our own reality. "
Charles Lamb

We left the cabin last week, fall was just entering the stage
but plans for travel meant, that this year at least, we could
not stay for the change. Now that we have a wood stove,
we may give it a try next year. When I think of the seasons
I always, eventually think of Edwin Way Teale.

"We would see a thousand moods and facets of the season, 
We would see new birds, new lands, all in the surroundings
of fall."

"Change is a measure of time and, in the autumn,
time seems speeded up. What was is not and never
again will be: what is is change."

"For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. 
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad."

Garden pond at the farm.

"2 A.M. moonlight. The train has stopped
out in a field. Far off sparks of light from a town,
flickering coldly on the horizon.
As when a man goes so deep into his dream"

"Summer girls they sure are fun 
Get so golden in the sun"

from Summer Girls
as sung by Blue Rodeo

Faded flowers and the last of the summer girls
at a family BBQ Tuesday night.

"I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade."

from The Lake Isle of Innisfree
by William Butler Yeats
