Leaf Peeping – 19 October 2006
I’ve decided to take another break in writing about The Sermon on
The beauty of autumn and the perfect weather could not be denied; so
yesterday and today Frank and I enjoyed long walks, admiring the
gorgeous foliage of trees at their peak color.
In contrast, there are some areas where trees are already bare with
what I call a “November” look, and nearly all the asters and golden rod
have gone to seed.
By Mary T. Hoffman
Published 27 August 1977 in The Daily Mail (Catskill, NY)
The morning sun burns through
a purplish haze
To bare the valley's patchwork
red and gold.
A deep contentment lingers o'er
Of mellowness forestalling
The future jack-o'-lanterns,
orange and round,
Contrast with cornstalks standing
brown and spare.
Bright-colored leaves fall gently
to the ground
And join the rustling crowd
A collection of poems by many authors may be found at:
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
