Short Share

Autumn is a good time for sharing short, favorite poetry. Here is one of my very favorites by Emily Dickinson. I like how it doesn't mention goldenrod allergies. *achoo* Isn't it pretty?

"The morns are meeker than they were,
the nuts are getting brown.
The berry's cheek is plumper,
the Rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf, 
the field - a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned
I'll put a trinket on."

This is one of my favorite Dickinson poems, especially the second verse. I always think of it now when I get out my fall clothes!
