October Scenes and Poem

A Leaf Treader ~ by Robert Frost

I have been treading on leaves all day until I am autumn-tired.
God knows all the color and form of leaves I have trodden on and mired.
Perhaps I have put forth too much strength and been too fierce from fear.
I have safely trodden underfoot the leaves of another year.

All summer long they were overhead, more lifted up than I.
To come to their final place in earth they had to pass me by.
All summer long I thought I heard them threatening under their breath.
And when they came it seemed with a will to carry me with them to death.

They spoke to the fugitive in my heart as if it were leaf to leaf.
They tapped at my eyelids and touched my lips with an invitation to grief.
But it was no reason I had to go because they had to go.
Now, up my knee, to keep on top of another year of snow.


Happy Birthday to Matthew Stephen!

Have been gone to Minnesota for almost two weeks!  Part of that time, Matthew was also with us - attended Samuel and Debbie's wedding, visited in New Ulm and North Oaks with his grandparents - and generally had a great time! We were able to celebrate his birthday several times during the week ~ here he is at Tria restaurant this past Friday night! 

Happy 38th Birthday Matthew!!
