Friday Poetry: Robert Louis Stevenson

Happy Friday my fellow Book Dragons.

I hope everyone has some wonderful bookish plans for the weekend. I sadly have a very full weekend work wise so will be lucky to get much reading in.

Today I noticed how the leaves on the trees are starting to change colour and that autumn is definitely on the way, so I thought an autumn based poem was required.

Autumn Fires

 

In the other gardens

And all up the vale,

From the autumn bonfires

See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over

And all the summer flowers,

The red fire blazes,

The grey smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons!

Something bright in all!

Flowers in the summer,

Fires in the fall!

 

Robert Louis Stevenson

 

Happy Reading

Picture is not of a bonfire but one of the fires we have in our house.
