Peak Leaves

The kids and I love this poem "Autumn Fires" by Robert Louis Stevenson. And though, Mr. Stevenson, was speaking of actual fires the kids and I felt like all the trees around us now appear to be on fire with their bright orange, yellow, and red leaves. Fall ... my favorite time of year!!
"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!"
~ Robert Louis Stevenson
