Sweetgums Red

Autumn Fires
Robert Louis Stevenson
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!

It has been a long time since I visited your site but it has a comfort about it that is welcoming like an old leather chair. Love the music. The gum leaves are pretty. It was good to be in your garden today.
