Sometimes I wax a bit poetic and this first week of autumn seems to be one of those times. My hope is that through these few verses you would take a moment to pause and reflect on the gift of God we are given in the changing seasons. Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!
This powerful and timeless poem was written by Minnie Louise Haskin in 1908 and has been quoted by many, including HRH The Queen, The Queen Mother and King George VI. The British people found it inspiring during the dark days of World War II.
