'Tis the last rose of summer,
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone.

-   Thomas Moore, The Last Rose of Summer, 1830


Not just another wild goose story



Signs of Fall


The chickadees have returned

A little early this year

The Blue Jays are stocking up

For a long cold winter here


Frost has nipped at the leaves

Turning them orange and red

Flower pods face the ground

And put their seeds to bed


Behind the house, in the marsh

At barely the slightest sound

The geese will honk a warning

While fleeing from the ground


The days are getting shorter

The mornings are quite cold

The sign say winter’s coming

So prepare and behold
