Autumn’s rosy leaves
Warm our hearts as
We wander along the
Sheltered golden path
Of birch, ash and larch,
Weaving magical tales to
Tell by the glowing hearth.
Happy National Poetry Day!
I love to write poetry, however there’s nothing more perfect to do on an autumnal evening than sitting in my fireside chair with a cup of tea or a glass of Damson gin reading from a favourite poet in one of my lovely old poetry books.
Today we’re celebrating everything to do with poetry on National Poetry Day. Enjoy reading a poem today. 🙂 Who are your favourite poets?
I think I’ll have some poetry and tea with breakfast.
Sounds lovely Brenda. Good for the digestion! 🙂
I made apples and cinnamon pancakes instead. Wicked good. 🙂
Absolutely enchanting Brenda! Will you be posting your delicious recipe? 🙂
I winged it. I don’t usually write down or use recipes. 🙂 I just grated a macintosh apple into the regular pancake batter and added a generous amount of cinnamon. It was surprisingly easy to grate apple. I’d never tried it before. Much easier than potato. 🙂
I often wing it too but then forget quantities for the next time. I’ve never thought of grating apple either, I’d have thought it would be too wet. Well done, your ad hoc recipe sounds delicious! 🙂
I often change proportions. Somehow it always tastes good, just different each time. My kids let me know. My hubby demands I write things down when he really likes something. 🙂
Romantic images and lovely poetry. Dylan Thomas is one of mine!!
Thank you Cybele. I like Dylan Thomas too. I can always hear his voice when I read Under Milk wood. He was very talented and such an interesting character. I really love John Clare. 🙂
To say I write poetry I didn’t know of this special day 🙂 you have celebrated it perfectly LG 🙂 Loved it.. and hope you enjoyed the Damson Gin 🙂
Thanks Sue. I hope you are well. 🙂 You definitely write lovely poetry! Celebrate and put the date in your diary for next year. Our local libraries had open mic sessions and various poetry themed events, lots of fun! Yesterday I collected lots of haws to make into jelly. We’ll be busy this weekend. 🙂
Thank you for that lovely compliment 🙂
Enjoy your weekend.. 🙂 and Jelly making.. Lovely 🙂 Hope you share the recipe you use 🙂 LOL. Hugs Sue xxx
Thanks Sue. I hope you have a good weekend too. I will share my recipe. Haws are good for us aren’t they? They did take a ling time to pick and I left loads for the birds. 🙂 What are you up to this weekend? 🙂
I have had my Granddaughter and my son visit today and we went to the allotments to show my son the Greenhouse.. My Granddaughter wanted to dig so I gave her the hoe.. She didn’t want to come away.. Tomorrow We are chilling and I may drive to Ladybower Dam and go hiking around it with my hubby.. Hope to get a few nice pictures of the trees turning..
Take care and by the looks of the berries I have a feeling the birds may need a few for their winter larder 😉 xx Hugs your way x
Poetry and tea marry well. Lovely poem and pictures.
Blessings as you write and read poetry this special day ~ Wendy

Glad you enjoyed your tea! Thanks Wendy. 🙂
