GARDEN BLOGGERS' MUSE DAY


When the goldenrod is yellow

and leaves are turning brown

reluctantly the summer goes

in a cloud of thistledown.

When squirrels are harvesting

and birds in flight appear

By these autumn signs we know

September days are here.

  1. I've certainly noticed a lot of goldenrod in bloom lately. All the signs are pointing toward fall--just as your poem says. Great choice!

    I've posted for Muse Day a little early at Prairie Rose's Garden.

  4. Hey Carolyn
    congratulations on 100,000 visitors! that's amazing.
    I have put my first GBMD post here
    - I'm sure it's a poem people have chosen before, being Shakespeare, but it seemed appropriate to the season!
