Mosaic Monday - Fall Splendor




Through a Woodland

I walked through an autumn woodland
On a still October day;
The transient beauty stirred my soul
In an awe-inspiring way.

The trees attired in splendor
For autumn's gala affair,
Wore dresses of red and yellow
With a regal and festive air.

The day was clear like crystal;
The sun's rays filtered through;
The sky stretched out above me-
A matchless shade of blue.

I walked through an autumn woodland
On a still October day;
The rustle of leaves fluttering down-
The breathless hush as they settled to ground,
Is haunting my memory today.

`Mary Lee Butts`

Today is Mosaic Monday hosted my Mary at Little Red House.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

"Happy Thanksgiving"
to fellow Canadian Bloggers.

Seems that the leaves are turning color a little late this year. Your pictures are lovely and harbingers of things to come.

I love those fall colours. Sadly they don't last very long.

Such absolutely stunning fall color. We have some, but nothing as grand. In fact this year, our fall colors are somewhat bland.

Such beautiful pictures and I loved the poem. It brings back wonderful memories of living in northern Maine and Colorado. This deep south Texas gal knows that as we are still contending with hot temperatures, the other part of the continent is being treated to a lovely display of fall colors.
Have a great week.

It's really a blessing that we see this kind of splendor right in our yard, neighborhood or around the city. I came from the Philippines and never had seen like this. Now I am always excited to see Fall colors. Thanks for the visit I do appreciate it.
