Indulge me yet again in another dreamy seasonal post, if you will. I took these photos in a friend's yard a little while back, admiring the change of light and color as the sun was setting. I love that when autumn arrives, you feel it in the air.

This is a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson called Autumn Fires, from A Child's Garden of Versus, written in 1885.  It's a simple, short poem that evokes the sensory experience of Autumn's arrival. 

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 gray smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons! 
Something bright in all! 
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
