Smile O voluptuous coolbreathed earth!
Earth of the slumbering and liquid trees!
Earth of departed sunset! Earth of the mountains misty-topt!
Earth of the vitreous pour of the full moon just tinged
with blue!
Earth of shine and dark-mottling the tide of the river!
Earth of the limpid gray of clouds brighter and clearer
for my sake!
Far-swooping elbowed earth! Rich appled-blossomed earth!
Smile, for your lover comes!

have a lovely, earthy wednesday...we are having an autumnal equinox party tonight to welcome in the first day of fall tomorrow (just ceej and i...but it should be fantastic!). i can hardly wait for summer to end (though we have 95 degrees in our forecast...ugh), and for the weather to cool down for my mittens and scarves. can hardly wait for the harvesting of apples, pumpkins, and everything else delicious. how are you celebrating autumn?

{and happy birthday wishes to frodo & bilbo of the shire!}

everyone is saying fall equinox is today, but my calendar says tomorrow as well! either way, glad to welcome the season (despite warm temps here as well...though about 10 degrees cooler than yours there...) hoping to get out the fall decor this evening and fill our house with pumpkins and leaves!

I am in waiting for fall as well. Looks like we were in similar worlds these past few days. I went to visit some ancient giants as well. Beautiful footage.
