Wishing all my readers a very Happy New Year!
A Toast! - Lang Leav
To new beginnings
in fear and faith
and all it tinges.
To love is a dare,
when hope and despair
are gates upon its hinges.
It's almost Halloween... when the 'witchery' of autumn is in plain sight.
from Incantation - George Parsons Lathrop
When the leaves, by thousands thinned, A thousand times have whirled in the wind, And the moon, with hollow cheek, Staring from her hollow height, Consolation seems to seek From the dim, reechoing night; And the fog-streaks dead and white Lie like ghosts of lost delight O’er highest earth and lowest sky; Then, Autumn, work thy witchery!
