Colours of autumn warm our hearts

berries warm our hearts

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.

woodland autumnal path

Happy National Poetry Day!

love poetry

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?

    • 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. 🙂

  1. 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 🙂

        • 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
