Mosaic Monday #8 September

September
The golden-rod is yellow;
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.

The gentian's bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusty pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun.

The sedges flaunt their harvest,
In every meadow nook;
And asters by the brook-side
Make asters in the brook.

From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes' sweet odors rise;
the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies.

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer's best of weather,
And autumn's best of cheer.

But none of all this beauty
Which floods the earth and air
Is unto me the secret
Which makes September fair.

'T’is a thing which I remember;
To name it thrills me yet:
One day of one September
I never can forget.
~ Helen Hunt Jackson ~
Along one of our country roads.
At home.
These two pots of begonias on the north wall continue to bloom prolifically. The grouping is a favourite as the mirror reflects an ornamental grass belonging to the neighbour next door.

  9. So thankful for sharing this poem, these lovely lyrics from your lovely post: "But none of all this beauty
    Which floods the earth and air
    Is unto me the secret
    Which makes September fair.

    'T’is a thing which I remember;
    To name it thrills me yet:
    One day of one September
    I never can forget." I will remember these excerpts...
    A sunny autumn!

  12. Lovely poem; besides all the obvious reasons to love September, I spent a couple September weeks with my grandmother at her house, and so this month I'm always reminded of her. I wonder what the special day for the poet was?
    And I love hay bales; there's something so satisfying to see the harvesting done.
    Have a happy week Judith. xo

  26. I wonder what that one day in September was that meant so much to the poet. There are still so many lovely things to enjoy in your garden. The dragonfly photo is great.

    Thanks for hosting MM, Judith. Have a wonderful week.

  28. I love seeing the goldenrod in September...so glad I am not allergic since I love getting close to photograph the swarming bees that accompany it! I have NEVER seen a dragonfly like one either...wow.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Loving your late summer/early fall pictures Judith. The mirror on the outside wall is such a beautiful and unique touch -- wonderful. And I'm envious of your picture of the dragonfly ... they never sit still long enough for me.

    Of course your mosaics are, as always, a great lesson in how to put beautiful ones together.

    I am so glad you decided to host this meme -- it is such fun.
