What a beautiful poem -- thank you for sharing it and the photos.I am ready for September, but not for this sticky miniature heat wave we're about to enter.
I am glad it is September because of the approaching new season and because your break is over! I missed your prose.
As we start our September over here in anticipation of warmth,blossoms,birds, butterflies,and the awakening of everything from it's winter's sleep I wish you well as your part of the world starts it's inward journey and you look forward to cooler days and fireside evenings. Kate xx
What a lovely poem - thanks for sharing it. I'll have to look up the poet. I like your getting ready list - especially the knitting basket. And as for 'that' smell? I know what you mean.
The poem works so well with your pictures...beautiful!!~~ReneeA Knitters NotebookP.s. September is on of my favorite monthes too!!
I loved the poem...and I know exactly that smell...it's already much cooler here...chilly in the mornings and evenings...but I love fall...
You transported me Tracey. For me it's October, but my sentiments exactly! Mmmm Autumn.Blessings,Debbie
What a lovely poem! I'm so glad you're smelling Autumn in the air even though it's still very hot. I love it that you can have winter fires there in spite of the blistering summers. Reminds me that we need to order our firewood. Happy September to you!
Thanks, Tracey, for having us time the time to appreciate what we have and what is still to come.Happy Autumn.hugs
what a sweet beginning to september. i can tell how much you love this month. i am so happy too, fall means our town goes back to being sleepy and uncrowded. most all of the summer campers and beach goers have left and the shore is once again empty. this morning as i was out for a walk alone with the seagulls and and sandpipers, i felt like i was with an old friend. it was also really foggy and damp and i made a mental note to cast on for some toastys!happy september :)
Lovely Tracy. I just love autumn, personally I prefer October...it may have something to do with my first born being an October baby.
Nice poem-and don't forget it's your birthday soon!Lisa
Your words make me long for Fall! September still is a bit on the hot side here (we have Indian summers) so I really can't wait for October. Thanks for sharing your lovely thoughts!
so pretty. i've been awaiting september for a while now only because i know that her arrival means october and november will soon be on their way ;-)
September is my favourite month as well! You sure have me longing to for crisp fall days.
Yes I do know what you mean about the feeling that things are shifting. I love knowing how truly connected we can be to this earth, it's such a gift :).Beautiful poem & pics as usual :)xx oo
Beautiful! I am really looking forward to Autumn this year and your post today really drove that home. Lovely photos and poem. :)
What a beautiful poem to share with us Tracey. I love the change seasons bring. You make it sound so romantic, as it should be. Autumn is pretty special here too. Jacinta
i’m coming to live with you. it all sounds just perfect!:)
lovely poem and beautiful pictures, we are just welcoming spring over here..
That smell I here as well and the leaves are starting to turn. There is something about Fall.
I love that poem. Your photos complement the words perfectly. You paint such a lovely picture of your home with the basket of wool by the rocker and the soft throw for your feet. Sigh. The familiar scent of fall is in the air here, too.
