Gathering Leaves

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?

Tea for Tuesday

Today, I'm sharing some tea-full fun for this splendid autumn day! I am delighted by this Customizable Tea Mug Cozy created by Kate at KnitStorm. She apparently sells these on Etsy; however, she is acclimating to motherhood, so a brief break is in order. Most of her links can be found on her blog, KnitStorm.

Through Twitter, I have met a tea enthusiast,
Denise at Uniquely Tea. Her blog is brimming with charm. Denise blogs from Charleston, South Carolina. There are many treasures to found among her musings. Be sure to pay her a visit!

Denise's blog introduced me to
ExtraSprinklesPlease, an immediately inviting website with a banner that reads: "sprinkles of joy, dollops of design, and chock full of free printables." Seriously, this is a place to perk up your bookmarks, to-do lists, etc. The site also offers little items to slip into gifts and envelopes as a sudden burst of affection to those you love!
