Wednesday

Autumn is a little crafty.




The fall season makes many of us want to explore our creative bents and try our hands at artistic endeavors. Autumn crafts are fun to do, especially when they include seasonal samplings taken directly from nature’s wonders.

And sometimes, a weather shift and a glowing fall sky inspires a little seasonal rhyming. So there it is.

Crafty Autumn



Autumn’s coming. Leaves will fall.

Time to make a corn husk doll.

Let’s arrange some dried wildflowers,

Spending happy crafting hours.



Kids paint cones and gather gourds;

Dab collages on driftwood boards.

Autumn art is fun to make,

So catch the kids, and take a break.

Beware the cold snap




As fall flies in with whirling leaf
A heavy heart may hoist its grief.
The season’s shiver shakes the bones
With marrow numbing undertones.

The weakest ones may swing to smite,
Recoiling as the most uptight.
So thoughtlessly, they ills entice.
It grows too late to break the ice.

Still woozy, stand we there to hold
Remaining ground, now frozen, cold.
But seasons pass, and so we stroll
To exercise our self-control.

A frost has come upon the air.
We wonder if we even care.
When fancies may run hot and cold,
Offenses may be best untold.

Back on the draggin’ trail




Aboard now, we’re back on the fly.
Bid summer vacation goodbye.
As children board buses with books,
And roommates exchange leery looks,
The whip snaps, but something’s awry.

Our favorite month in the morn
Still leaves us bereft and forlorn.
The horses are hitched. We’re resolved
To goals that have not yet evolved.
We’re back on the wagon, but torn.

Thus, loaded, we urge on the pair,
As menacing deadlines ensnare.
And rampant run worries, alas!
The ropes, they unravel too fast.
We’re never with nary a care.

But fall holds its promise again.
Thus, autumn brings boldness to men.
While leaves sport the colors of earth,
We labor for all that we’re worth
And echo the lusty amen.
