A writer inspired by nature and human nature

Wildflowers & cricket poem 4 blog BAS 2016Happy September!

Another Labor Day Weekend and the crickets here at The Farmstead in Central Maine are singing about it. I snapped this photo on the day their chorus began (three weeks ago). As Grandma would say, “Only six more weeks ’til frost.” And that was three weeks ago.

Needless to say, nature inspired me to pen a poem for the occasion.

  4. I loved this poem! Six weeks till frost is depressing. Reblogged this on mallie1025.wordpress.com

    • Thanks, Micki. Only three week now! Summer days are getting shorter and I’m really not ready for fall and especially not for what comes after. But, then there will be spring! Have a wonderful day, my dear friend! ❤ Bette

  5. Bette, you created a beautiful poem. I love the chorus of crickets. They’re singing as I type this. ❤️

    • Hi, Tracy. Thanks for stopping by to visit. Every season plays it music so well that one can’t help but get inspired. Have a fabulous week! 🙂 ❤

  6. ‘Longing to linger’…yes I too think the same every evening as I look at the setting sun, going down within minutes! But I love all the hues and changes, which nature brings. 🙂
    Lovely poem, Bette.

    • Thank you, Balroop. Each season creates its own masterpieces for us to enjoy! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. May your day be filled with wonders, my friend! 🙂 ❤

  7. Love it, Bette. So perfect for the season 🙂

  8. Beautiful poem, Bette heralding the new season! The azure skies disappeared to sunnier climes yesterday alas!

  9. You are a super poet! Loved this! We do have the crickets now – our tree frogs aren’t singing any more but I’m finding a frog in the pool with me every day. I’m getting a lot of exercise chasing them around the pool with a net.

    • Oh, Noelle! You’ve got me giggling just thinking about the splash parties you’re hosting… Thanks so much for stopping by with your encouraging words all around. Hugs! 🙂 ❤

  10. Lovely poem, Bette. I love crickets. I don’t hear them as much out here. They always remind me of the late days of summer. How the frost hold off for you a little longer! Happy Autumn.

    • Thank you, Diana. Crickets are still singing their seasonal songs and we’re hoping it continues right into October. Enjoying the music and wishing you a lovely autumn too! 🙂

  11. Lovely! I can’t wait to share it with my daughter who loves to read and write poetry. Thanks for sharing this post at Booknificent Thursday on Mommynificent.com! Always a pleasure to have you.

    • Hi, Tina. Thanks so much for stopping by and for the opportunity to linkup too. I always find engaging posts to read and share and great blogs to follow as well. Have a great time celebrating the season through poetry with your daughter. 🙂
