The Last Rose of Summer--Marie

ahem, sorry. Welcome Fall! Anywho, these pictures were taken in the later part of August, I hope you enjoy!


then the chickens ambushed. 

The Last Rose of Summer, is a poem that was written in 1805. It was later put to music, I couldn't find the date of when. But anyway, you have been warned it is sad and a little depressing. But here it is.

'Tis the last rose of summer left blooming alone
All her lovely companions are faded and gone
No flower of her kindred, no rosebud is nigh
To reflect back her blushes and give sigh for sigh

I'll not leave thee, thou lone one, to pine on the stem
Since the lovely are sleeping, go sleep thou with them
Thus kindly I scatter thy leaves o'er the bed
Where thy mates of the garden lie scentless and dead

So soon may I follow when friendships decay
And from love's shining circle the gems drop away
When true hearts lie withered and fond ones are flown
Oh who would inhabit this bleak world alone?
This bleak world alone

What do you think? Have you heard it before? 
School is keeping me pretty busy, our doll school posts seem to just keep getting pushed behind everything else. There are more posts on their way.
Thanks for stopping by! 
Go play in the leaves and take pictures!
