Firebush in Fall

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 grey smoke towers.

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


by Robert Louis Stevenson

  3. Thanks for sharing the great picture. Fall is my favorite time of year and I always marvel at all the colours we see on the trees and bushes. The poem looks like an addition to our scrapping.
