“That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold”

  1. I love your Monday verses … the delight of a picture illustrated with perfectly chosen poetry is such a soothing start to the week πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you πŸ™‚ I’ve privately committed myself to posting one each Monday during 2015, which may test my mental reservoir of poetry snippets to breaking point.
