We’re Hosting Poetry Friday Today!

Welcome! Please link the poem you post to this one by clicking on the Image Linky at the bottom of this post. (To ensure that we capture your Poetry Friday Submission, please leave a comment since we’ve had some trouble with Mr. Linky in recent weeks.)

Now on to the poetry!

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I went down to Point Judith, which is on the coast here in Rhode Island, and breathed in the sea air in the final moments of summer. Ahhh! Now, it’s autumn and the leaves are turning. Hence, I’m trying to take in all of the beauty this wonderful season in New England offers both by the sea and in the mountains. Here’s a poem from A New England Scrapbook: A Journey Through Poetry, Prose, and Pictures, which is a lovely collection of poems (and prose and pictures) about life in New England. Here’s one of my favorites:

The Sea
Behold the wonders of the mighty deep
where crabs and lobsters learn to creep

I hope you’ll consider posting a poem about the change of seasons in your part of the world this week. (Though all Poetry Friday Submissions are welcome!!!)

Finally, check back late tonight for the round-up.

Edited (6:27 a.m.): Before you post your poem, read this post on copyrights with regard to Poetry Friday.
