Fragrant Quote for October 31st, 2012- OCTOBER—Stanford Conant.

Autumn Rainbow

Golden rod and thistle down
In the fields and all around,
And a fragrance in the air,
And the fairy barks a-sailing,
And the beauty everywhere
Hill and wood and valley valeing,
Like an angel's soft caress,
Fills the heart with loveliness.
And the present is a vision,
And the past is but a dream;
And the deep soul laughs at wisdom
That would have things somber seem.
Only joy the days contain,
When life leads this happy round;
All the world sings one refrain.
Golden rod and thistle down.
Stanford Conant.
