Poems Singing Autumn’s Praise

This Fall we live in a house in Campbellsville, KY. Our new neighborhood is beautiful and spacious. My 3 year old James and I love to walk in our neighborhood in the mornings to enjoy the fresh air and the trees around here. Sometimes we even see the moon still lingering above our head.

Fall is here. The Fall blue sky this morning is beautiful! I will never cease to be amazed at the breath-taking effects this season has on the senses. It is so enjoyable to live in Autumn!

Poetry time is time to slow down and enjoy daydreaming!

Sonnet 73 – William Shakespeare (1609)

That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or non, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou see’st the twilight of such day
As after sunset fadeth in the west;
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death’s second self, that seals up all in rest.
In me thou see’st the glowing of such fire,
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the deathbed whereon it must expire,
Consumed with that which it was nourished by.
This thou perceiv’st, which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well which thou must leave ere long.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
