Tis the season


 The Sound of the Trees

Robert Frost

I WONDER about the trees.
Why do we wish to bear
Forever the noise of these
More than another noise
So close to our dwelling place?
We suffer them by the day
Till we lose all measure of pace,
And fixity in our joys,
And acquire a listening air.

       In an effort to make this blog a little bit more interactive, I would love it if you would comment on a few of your favorite things about this time of year. Personally, I love the fall. I think if I had to have a favorite time of the year, it would be the Fall. Here are a few reasons I love the fall- Please leave me a comment about what you love about the fall.
