Fall has taken me by the hand and keeps leading me away from my work. She keeps luring me, with my camera around my neck, to go here and there where I might get a closer look at a tree of gold or red on the mountainside...click, click! Darkness comes earlier each day, so the daylight hours get away all too quickly. I must hurry for there are other things waiting. On the sewing table a robe for Father Christmas and a bag for him to carry are waiting to be stitched.
I meant to do my work today,
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand,
So what could I do but laugh and go?
