Lady Fall’s Harvest Ride

 On harvest chariot piled sky high

Lady Fall is passing by

With garnered fruits and wealth untold

Of royal purple mixed with gold.

 

To Lady Summer’s farewell nod

She waves a plume of Goldenrod,

And as the birds fly south again,

She cries, “Good-bye, auf Wiedersehen.”

        1. Well, truthfully I like Greek art too, but I am a bit of a dope about it – a long ago art history class, a couple of trips to Greece and a museum I like with lots of Greek pieces. I never really thought about it as something I like, but I do!

          1. How nice! A couple of trips to Greece! I’m the same I think. I rarely think about Greek art but some things stay with me–they remind me of my university days in NYC–some good memories, some bad. I don’t have a depth of knowledge especially since I avoided doing my final writing assignment and having done zero research I just wrote some random thoughts about feminism and mythology. My professor failed me because she thought I’d written the paper for another class and reused it–which I didn’t do. She changed the grade to a C but it really annoyed me because I did really well on the exams and I’d rather be known as a goof-off than a liar!

            1. Oh those college professors! So many silly ideas. I believe you might be a goof-off but not a liar. You don’t seem to be the type who lies. However, a dim wit college professor could fail to note your truthful but slightly lazy nature! Drama . . . how else would a sad picky NYU professor elevate him or herself to be a sentient being?

  1. I agree with Middlemay Farm about fauns and magical flutes. I always hear DeBussy’s Prelude a L’Apres Midi D’un Faune playing in my middle imagination. I love the cerulean blue sounds that make the naked nymphs dance along the far rim of my southern imagination. Die Zauberflote.
