Happy Autumn!

Gathering Leaves
by Robert Frost

Spades take up leaves
No better than spoons,
And bags full of leaves
Are light as balloons.

I make a great noise
Of rustling all day
Like rabbit and deer
Running away.

But the mountains I raise
Elude my embrace,
Flowing over my arms
And into my face.

I may load and unload
Again and again
Till I fill the whole shed,
And what have I then?

Next to nothing for weight,
And since they grew duller
From contact with earth,
Next to nothing for color.

Next to nothing for use.
But a crop is a crop,
And who's to say where
The harvest shall stop?


  1. I am so excited for fall, if it finally cools down. :( Those are some very lovely pictures you posted! :)

  2. This poem is wonderful! I love it the line, "And bags full of leaves are light as balloons." Made me smile. ^.^

  3. That cabin is beautiful! Where did you see it?!
