Autumn by Amy Lowell

Autumn 2011 at Casa Dragonfly.

 

Autumn

By Amy Lowell 1874–1925
 
All day I have watched the purple vine leaves
fall into the water.
And now in the moonlight they still fall,
but each leaf is fringed with silver.

Goodbye summer.  Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out, you hot, mean bitch.  Adios!!  ~Marion

It looks nothing like fall here yet. The fountains still spray in the park and the kids giggle behind their bathing suits. Damn it's hot.

Love you friend. Sent snail mail today :)
