Yes, it’s that time of year again…fall. And fall in New England is quite simply, a glorious sight to behold. Right at this very moment there are “leaf peepers” traveling from far and wide to see mother nature’s beauty on full display!
This weekend is our company trip and we’ll be staying in the Berkshires (Western MA). Being so close to home, John and I will be enjoying all of this beauty, together. I can’t wait!!! 🙂
I grew up in New England, but it never gets old! I’m still inspired and awed by the sheer wonder of it all…brilliant shades of yellow, red and orange line every street in every town…brilliant glowing sun kissed trees line every highway! If you’ve never ‘tasted’ fall in New England…you’re missing out on something very special!
I found this poem and I just love it! I think that it captures the season so well.
Sun with his artistic touch,
streaks skies of blue with rosy blush,
trimming Oak and Maple too,
crimson reds with yellow hue.
Birch and Hemlock, purple and gold,
apples, pumpkins bright and bold,
burns by day and cools by night,
cloaking trees in fiery might.
Wispy winds and tumbling leaves,
cypress scents within the breeze,
starry eves and harvest moon,
sets the stage for crickets’ tune.
As spiders spin their tapestry
and crickets sing in symphony,
their final song of destiny,
it’s clear for all the world to see,
Autumn’s vibrant majesty!
