The morns are meeker than they were



The morns are meeker than they were
The nuts are getting brown
The berry's cheek is plumper
The Rose is out of town.

The Maple wears a gayer scarf
The field a scarlet gown
Lest I should be old fashioned
I'll put a trinket on!

- Emily Dickinson


Erté - "Manhattan"

British Summer Time is over. Time to get the sparkles out.

  1. I read that title (and first line) as "The moms are meeker now," and all could think was that in comparison to my own Late Mother, that's almost certainly the case.
