Autumn Mist

 I saw old Autumn in the misty morn
Stand shadowless like silence, listening
To silence, for no lonely bird would sing
Into his hollow ear from woods forlorn,
Nor lowly hedge nor solitary thorn;—
Shaking his languid locks all dewy bright
With tangled gossamer that fell by night,
Pearling his coronet of golden corn.
~Thomas Hood : Autumn (1798-1845)

A lovely pairing Jo.

I am still in Germany but was able to get on line today and moderate some comments. Wedding celebrations are winding down now :)
