I prefer winter and Fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth

A Poem

My sorrow, when she's here with me,
Thinks these dark days of autumn rain
Are beautiful as days can be;
She loves the bare, the withered tree;
She walks the sodden pasture lane. R. Frost

  1. Are we on the same brain wave or what? I have another one I am putting up Monday, so how about we call it Muse Mondays? We will link to each other when we do it?

    This is beautiful, I cannot help but words come to mind when I look at photos like this, and the rain begins...or should I say flood!

  4. Beautiful picture and a perfect verse for it. No cooking for today? I let you off once. Take care.

  5. Beautiful poem Elly Mae. You are one that seems to post just what I am in need of hearing at just the right time. It has been a rough summer. The Dr found a tumor on Mel's uterus and is doing an exploratory surgery the 14th of this month. She is doing such a good job of being strong for her little family. I am hoping and praying that all will be alright. She is Chris and the kids world. Love ya Elly Mae.

  6. Wonderful photo and beautiful poem. Have a great day. Madeline
