Farewell to Autumn

Oak-leaved Hydrangea : Hydrangea Quercifolia.

After an unusually mild autumn,winter has suddenly appeared bringing rain, icy winds
 and snow on high ground.

Ripples on water.

I open the door.A gorgeous guest
 from afar sweeps in.In her hands are
 gifts--the gifts of hours and far-seeing
 moments,the gift of mornings and evenings,
the gift of spring and summer,the gift
of autumn and winter.She must have
 searched the heavens for boons so rare.

Abbie Graham : American writer (1889-1972).
