Autumn Flowers

 

Happy Pink Saturday 

Those few pale Autumn flowers,


How beautiful they are!


Than all that went before,


Than all the Summer store,


How lovelier far!


Pale flowers! perishing flowers!


I woo your gentle breath--


I leave the Summer rose


For younger, blither brows;


Tell me of change and death.

I wish I had some flowers like yours. The Texas heat has about wiped mine out.

The pictures are lovely - but at least here in Germany, autumn flowers are anything but pale, quite the contrary :-) We have rich yellows and oranges and reds and browns and golds on the chrysanthemums and many others, I love this time of the year!

Beautiful flowers - the one that is not yet open caught my breath and startled me - how amazing God's hand in something so simple as a flower . . .

You picked a great set of photos and verse! Happy Pink Saturday to ya.
