Monday's fall quote
This Monday quote is from Emily Bronte. I love the Bronte sisters. I love their poems and books. I love Haworth and the moors. I love the Bronte Parsonage and know the guide book by heart when I go through the house. This sampler is one I purchased at the parsonage about 3 years ago. It was a kit created from the sampler Anne sewed as a child that is hanging in the parsonage. Enjoy both the sampler and the beautiful fall poem!
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night's decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
