I Am the Goddess of the Fall

Though the leaves may fall from the tree, mourn them not;
For I wear them as my crown, proclaiming their once-green glory
Into the white winter.
Unless I start feeling a bit peckish,
And then perhaps I shall nibble the leaves of the mighty maple tree
Which really aren’t that bad if you know how to prepare them.

    I actually googled to see if this was making fun of a real, famous poem I hadn’t heard. Nope, all-original NTMTOM.

    Truly you are a modern William Blake: an artist, a visionary, and possibly a crazy person.

  3. Beautiful peeg! He looks like some kind of wild creature with that coloring.

  4. Marvelous on every level – NTMTOM, I’m sure you get tired of hearing this, but – I don’t know how you do it! 😀

  5. That’s pretty much my spinach salad recipe except I prefer pecans to almonds. I would be glad to share with this distinguished peeg.

  6. Do get a sense of Thoreau here.
