Quote du Jour/Katherine Mansfield

Now’s the time when children’s noses  
All become as red as roses
And the colour of their faces
Makes me think of orchard places
Where the juicy apples grow,
And tomatoes in a row.

From Autumn Song
by Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923)

  3. Thanks for sharing this poem. It made me think of my Kiddo's rosy cheeks when she was young and it was cold. Your granddaughter looks like she is really getting big now, and so pretty. You must be so very happy.

  5. Perfect illustration for the poem. Of course it would be a perfect picture because of the subject , even unaccompanied by verse! So sweet...
