Changing Seasons

In honor of the autumnal equinox, I'm going to postpone this week's World of Wonder in favor of lovely fall art by Andy Goldsworthy and Carl Sandburg. Enjoy, and best wishes for a hearty season!


Autumn Movement
by Carl Sandburg

I cried over beautiful things knowing no beautiful thing lasts.

The field of cornflower yellow is a scarf at the neck of the copper sunburned woman, the mother of the year, the taker of seeds.

The northwest wind comes and the yellow is torn full of holes, new beautiful things come in the first spit of snow on the northwest wind, and the old things go, not one lasts.
