Chapter 10, Page 5, Book 08

Autumn Flight

Now the wild geese are going over,
Clanking their chains on the windless sky,
Over the cornfields, over the clover,
Shouting their wild exuberant cry:
"Come with us, come with us---come."
Silver and gray, the wild geese wings
Lift and spread in their miracle flight.
Music fills their haunting cry
As they speed against the encroaching night.
They shout a message as they go,
Deciphered for every beast and man.
"Heed the season's farewell call
Take to cover while still you can."
They are calling,
And I, with no answer shaped in my mouth,
Stand where the painted leaves are falling,
Watching them disappear in the south.
Disappear from my sight and my hearing,
Going to who knows what far land,
Straight as an arrow, and not fearing
The journey ahead. .. . Silver and gray,
the wild geese wings
Beat in rhythm in miracle flight.. . .
A poignant music their clarion cry
As they speed against the encroaching night.
I lift my hand
Bidding them to stay their avid going
Across the wide and chartered track,
Calling to them, and yet well knowing
That only the spring will bring them back.
Wings in a wedge against the sky,
On and on I saw them fly;Spellbound
I stopped at the mystic sight . . .
Wild geese making their southern flight.
How can a mortal doubt God's plan?
Faith enough here for any man,
Watching the blue October sky,
Flame-touched leaves, wild geese on high.

I had a great weekend and hope you all did too. I went to the camper Thursday evening after work and then Friday during the day I managed to get the base coat on my little signs I painted for the fall festival at the campground next weekend. Friday evening the camper babes all came in. We enjoyed a the campfire more than usual as it was colder than usual.

Saturday I finished up the signs as you will see in one of the pictures I added, then Saturday evening we went to the street fair in the little town near by. It was fun and we had our evening meal there. Then Sunday morning when I got up it was so foggy you couldn’t see the camper across the road from us so I stayed at the campground and didn’t venture off to church as I usually would have. I’m sure the good Lord must have understood.

DS#1 fixed a good breakfast for us and by then the sun was out the fog disappeared and it started warming up a bit. My camper deck needed to have some sealer put on it so DS#1 and DSIL did that for me. We really spent a lovely day just sitting around visiting and eating and enjoying the lovely day.

I did not want to come home, but I did, now it’s get ready for work once more as tomorrow is Monday already.

I owe, I owe
It’s off to work I go….


Friendships may come and go ...
but the love of family lasts forever

We are forever joined with all that came before us,...
and part of all that is to come
