autumn fires

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

An evening full of autumn fire, s'mores, running around the backyard in the fading sun, cooling temperatures and throwing a glowing frisbee. Could this be perfection?

  5. Love the poem and the photos! I'm hungry for s'mores now. ;)

  6. Looks pretty perfect to me. Thanks for your kind words over at numbmum. They mean a lot.

  7. I would LOVE to have a fire pit in our back yard. We are using our indoor fireplace for making s'mores, but it isn't the same :)


I love to hear what you think!
