autumn treasures

On one of the last warm October days we made a walk around this beautiful castle, surrounded by a forest and fields and a family of alpacas.

We enjoyed the soft light, it enlightens everything with a golden and warm glow. Autumn colors became even more intense and bright. How I love these flaming colors, especially on a gloomy day. But on this day it was like summer didn’t want to say goodbye and treated us with its last warmth and kindness.

We collected sweet chestnuts and ate them bit by bit along our walk. It’s amazing how many treasures we found, when one looks carefully and indulge the beauty of nature! I noticed these maple seeds on a wooden table surrounded by a soft bed of moss. It was the perfect place to rest before taking flight again. And who don’t want to have a seat on these gigantic fairy mushrooms?!

A season of falling leaves

and hibernating trees

of gathering and hoarding

of frosty, sparkling, misty mornings.

A season for crunching and munching

for chestnut roasting

and crumpet toasting

for bonfire flames dancing

in the midnight air

A season for listening

to racing winds whistling

through sleepy undressed branches

and for children, chasing the host

of whirling, twirling falls leaves.

                    A poem compiled entirely by children
