September's Gold

The next couple of weeks are going to be really busy (very good busy!)  and I’m not going to have much time to work on any sort of creative endeavors of the make it/build it variety. 
 
But I do have time to work with my photography.  I can take photos waiting in a parking lot!  In fact, I sometimes challenge myself to come up with X number of interesting shots while I’m sitting ‘doing nothing’. 
 
So I was able to work on my photos challenges this week!
 
I really liked the photo of goldenrod I took a few days ago on my lake walk.  It reminded me of a poem I had to memorize in 5th grand.
 
SEPTEMBER
 
by: Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-1885)
 
The golden-rod is yellow;
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.
 
The gentian's bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusty pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun.
 
The sedges flaunt their harvest,
In every meadow nook;
And asters by the brook-side
Make asters in the brook.
 
From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes' sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies.
 
By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer's best of weather,
And autumn's best of cheer.
 
But none of all this beauty
Which floods the earth and air
Is unto me the secret
Which makes September fair.
 
'Tis a thing which I remember;
To name it thrills me yet:
One day of one September
I never can forget. 
 
 
 
 
 
And with that memory, I made this note card.  I’m looking forward to having enough variety to do a printing!
