Autumn Revisited


Autumn has arrived
and all were working hard
to clear the fallen leaves
and tidy up the yard.

The snail was going slowly
and chatting to the trees,
when suddenly he stopped
and gave a mighty sneeze.

The bees were not impressed,
who has time to sneeze? 
when he's so far behind,
"hurry, if you please!"

The snail was just about
to say "so sorry, bees" -
he opened up his mouth
and... gave another sneeze.


Featured: The yard is so tidy
I thought I'd do a bit of glamping
while the weather holds.

Kim said...

How sweet♡ Though the sweet little animals could just enjoy the carpet of leaves. =) As for little bit of glamping....sounds divine♡

Aritha said...

So nice. Here Autumn, yes. This morning it is very, very misty.

VeggieMummy said...

Gorgeous poem and toy. The camping trips we've been on have been very far from glamping! I'd quite like to give it a go though. xx

A lovely celebration of Autumn. We are enjoying a beautiful sunny start to Autumn in parts of the UK.
Best wishes

Hello

Cute poem, does the sneezy snail have allergies?
I would like to go glamping.
Take care, enjoy your day! Have a happy new week!

Daniela said...

Dearest Amalia,
I so love to come and visit you here,
you always lift my spirits and put a smile on my face!
This nonsense about the sneezy snail is truly lovely, thank you :)
Wishing you a most wonderful remainder of your Sunday and new week ahead

So funny, Amalia!
Love how you made that sleeping bag!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love to get outside but I have some allergies right now. It won't keep me in the house though! Ahhhchhooo! lol Love your little one in the little bed!

Vee said...

The yard needs my daily attention for the next few weeks. That's what I get for living at the forest's edge.

This little sleeping bag with a little critter inside would make a sweet gift for a child.

Very sweet poem Amalia. How sweet your talents are. Makes me smile.

Red Rose Alley said...

What a cute little bed and blanket pouch. I'm glad your yard is tidy for Autumn. I'm still working on mine, as there's much to do in the mountains,
but I do keep my walkways washed down. It's nice to have a hot cup of coffee
out there on a chilly day. This is a sweet poem, Amalia.

Super cute poem. Lots of allergies for a lot of us this time of year. All the rain and changes in the air. Have a great new week ahead. xoxo Kris

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

Autumn chores make me sneeze too, ha! So much raking of pine needles here to do, and preparing for a cold winter. As the leaves fall from the trees, I am enjoying the beautiful fall days, but soon the barren tree limbs will hold white adornment, and yes, I must prepare and get those leaves raked. Such a darling little prose, and sweet creation of yours! You are just so creative dear friend!

baili said...

Angie said...

Amalia - this makes me think of the story of the grasshopper and the ant - is it hard work or fiddling the summer away that is of more value? Sweet, sweet poem! Enjoy the glamping!

Karen @ Beatrice Euphemie said...

Oh, so charming, Amalia! Glamping in the fall sounds wonderful, especially when you have such a darling sleeping bag and flower-strewn bed. I have lots of snails sneezing here - they love my pansies. Sending hugs xo K
