The Battle of the Seasons



Autumn was very upset,
the day was not going well;
he went to his friend, the sun.
to talk (he tried not to yell):

"That summer just won't go away,
he's lingering beyond any reason,
and it is not at all fair -
when he knows that this is my season.

Summer has so much time
from winter until fall,
while everyone knows full well,
my season is the shortest of all!"

The sun answered: "Autumn,
I know you're a friend of mine.
But I have to side with summer -
'cause he just makes me shine."



A biased author, I'm so ready for
a proper autumn and welcoming it
with a scarf for my beautiful niece Roni.

  2. Very pretty scarf (and the recipient, too). Hot and humid here and a dust storm just rolled through. I'm definitely looking forward to cooler weather.

  7. I adore this poem. You are so talented with verse, but also with knitting. The scarf is so pretty. Maybe soon we will wear it.

  8. Haha, what a cute poem! As for me, Autumn around here is too short, especially this year, but not because Summer won't go away, but because Winter stuck his cold nose in far too early.

    However, this week we are promised a proper autumn of sunshine and crisp air and smells of leaves and earth (not snow).

    I hope it's a week where you can wear your sweaters and scarves.

  10. The scarf is really gorgeous as is your niece :)
    Here we have spring temps and they say it will be such until the end of October. Indian summer anyone else?

  12. Hello Amalia
    Roni, look beautiful wearing the pretty scarf. I like the firepit, it would be wonderful on a chilly evening. Cute poem, thanks for sharing. Enjoy your day, have a great new week!

  14. A beautiful scarf and a beautiful poem. Love the pine cone and log photo - so cosy. xx

  15. Lovely poem! Although I have to say I agree with Autumn. I think it's very much time to snuggle up with a knitted blanket on the sofa, listening to a rainy storm with hot tea and handmade socks! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  16. Nice! I ♥ the "sjaal". Very warm colors. We have very warm autumn days now. This is because the remnants of tropical hurricanes Leslie an Michael are leaving over the Mediterranean, instead of crossing our country as expected. I am also knitting :-)

  17. That's a lovely photograph of Roni, and I love the scarf.
    Great poem Amalia.

    Enjoy the week ahead.

    All the best Jan

  18. I'm with you. I love, love, love summer, but once the pool is covered and the beach is closed, I say bring on fall. In the meantime, your scarf and your model are just beautiful in any weather! xo

  21. I'm loving fall which has come to Texas early this year. Your poem and scarf show how pretty the season can be.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The scarf is so lovely! Beautiful colors:)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am a fall and winter person, so I'm always ready to see summer go! :-) Summer in Texas is never a pleasant experience. Love that beautiful scarf and the poem is just too cute! Your niece is gorgeous....beautiful smile! Love and hugs!

  24. I can tell it's still warm by Roni's sleeveless top. Hopefully, you will get some autumn weather soon :) Beautiful scarf!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Such a cute poem! I love the scarf...looks beautiful on lovely Roni! I have a niece named Roni, too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. We went from summer to winter temps, but it looks like we may be getting some Autumn temps now, which I am thankful for, I agree with your wonderful poem that Fall does not last long enough at all, either summer last longer or winter comes to early :(
    Your scarf is just gorgeous and looks wonderful on your niece, she will love it once winter hits.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It is very warm here as well, and I would love some cooler temps. Beautiful scarf!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Roni is a beautiful girl and the scarf suits her perfectly. It's warm here, but the temperatures are dropping at night to just above freezing, so we wear coats in the morning and shed them in the afternoon. Autumn is such a lovely season and it's definitely winning over summer here. I hope things cool down for you soon.

  31. Hello,
    Your poem is right on. We too had a LONG HOT SUMMER. Autumn had about a day and Winter moved in. We had snow all of last weekend and more on the way this weekend.
    Love, Carla

  32. That is a lovely scarf...she will enjoy it so much!

  33. Look how sweet Roni looks in your lovely scarf! We just started having real autumn weather and I am really happy about it too.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Full out Autumn lover here too! I have learned to appreciate summer, my least favorite, more the last couple of years simply because each day is a gift. Absolutely gorgeous scarf, Amalia! And it's model is beautiful! I hope you get to use that fire pit soon.

  36. Such a wonderful poem, Amalia! I do love Autumn, best of all! Such a pretty scarf in soft, autumn colors, and a very pretty model. I hope you get to wear the scarf, soon! xo K

  37. Again.....a wonderfully lyrical poem that dances along with the sunshine. Amalia, don't be cross with me....but I have hitched my wagon to Summer. I know, I know, Autumn is the most gloriously hued season BUT we all know what follows. Though of course, your beautifully knitted woolly will help to ward off the chilly breath of Ol' Man Winter and then there's the fire pit. How wonderful to sit by its warmth and glow. Love the colours in Roni's scarf!

  38. Beautiful Beautiful poetry as always dear Amalia!

  40. What a cute poem for how we were all feeling all over the world a few weeks ago! Fall is finally here in Upstate NY, USA!! Trying not to complain about all the rain!

    ReplyDelete
  41. You're so right. Fall is always too short, with summer that keeps coming back and winter trying to start before its time.
    Your scarf is quite lovely. Perfect for fall-summer and fall-winter, with this array of colors. Hugs!

  66. We never get a proper autumn here - and this year we skipped spring, went right into summer and straigh back to winter :)

  75. It doesn't seem right that some seasons last longer than others, lol! Hopefully your beautiful niece gets to wear the gorgeous scarf quite soon! We have danced and skipped through Fall's gorgeous colors here, and are sliding into winter... no snow yet, but it's not far off. I wish I could bottle some of the fall colors we saw here to send to you. Hoping you get your autumn desires! Hugs and blessings :)
