I received this email this evening from Donna-Marie, a friend that I met through FamilyCorner.com. She lives in the one of the most beautiful places in the world to me...Maine. I am captivated by the beauty of Maine...the rocky beaches, the lighthouses and the gorgeous colors in the fall. I have never been, but hopefully someday we will make it there!
The leaves had a wonderful frolic.
They danced to the wind's loud song.
They whirled, and they floated, and scampered.
They circled and flew along.
The moon saw the little leaves dancing.
Each looked like a small brown bird.
The man in the moon smiled and listened,
And this is the song he heard.
The North Wind is calling, is calling,
And we must whirl round and round,
And then, when our dancing is ended,
We'll make a warm quilt for the ground
Beautiful! I can wait for the leaves to start changing colors!
Thanks Donna Marie!
