postheadericon Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost – Sunday Selections

Robert Frost is one of my favorite poets. The poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay” below is just one of the many reasons I enjoy his work.
Red Barn Blue Skies presents Robert Frost and Nothing Gold Can Stay
 

Nothing Gold Can Stay 

by Robert Frost 
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
Be sure to check out more of our favorite Sunday Selections.

postheadericon You Are My Sunshine – Sunday Selections

I’m famous in our family for my lack of singing ability. It’s a sad fact that I was absent when talent and tonality were being handed out. Of course, this hasn’t stopped me from belting out a song now and then – much to the delight chagrin of my critters. You Are My Sunshine happens to be a favorite.

You are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine

You make me happy….when skies are gray

postheadericon Delicious Autumn by George Eliot – Sunday Selections

This week’s Sunday Selections is a poem from George Eliot entitled “Delicious Autumn”. It is the perfect accompaniment for my photo of a pair of herons flying south for the winter.

Delicious Autumn

Delicious Autumn by George Eliot at Red Barn Blue Skies
Delicious autumn!
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.

postheadericon Only a Cat – Sunday Selections

Only a Cat is our pick for today’s Sunday Selections. The author is unknown, but it is obvious they have experience living with a feline friend.

Only a Cat

Only a Cat Sunday Selections Red Barn Blue Skies

I’m only a cat,

and I stay in my place…

Up there on your chair,

on your bed or your face!

 

I’m only a cat,

and I don’t finick much…

I’m happy with cream

and anchovies and such!

I’m only a cat,

and we’ll get along fine…

As long as you know

I’m not yours… you’re all mine!

postheadericon Louisa May Alcott – Sunday Selections

Enjoy this piece from Louisa May Alcott as we celebrate love and blessings with today’s Sunday Selections.
Louisa May Alcott at Red Barn Blue Skies
 
Love is a flower that grows in any soil,
works its sweet miracles undaunted by autumn frost or winter snow,
blooming fair and fragrant all the year,
and blessing those who give and those who receive.
~Louisa May Alcott
