The eighth is a photo of the fall scene along a hiking trail in Maryland and the ninth shows a beautiful Stony Brook fall scene at the creek by Shipman's Point. The last image is of Long Island artist Joe Reboli's painting, "Fall Harvest After The Rain".
Fallís Season brings Traditions old,
Rock Maples, Oaks bear Colors bold;
Last Summerís Grass has spun to Gold,
When Days grow short, Nights frosty cold;
Thanksgivingís Tale will soon unfold.
On Tables decked, starched Linen white,
Place Settings checked, Bone Chinaís bright;
Spiced Pumpkin Pie; dry Wines delight,
Clear Crystal Glass, by Candlelight;
Our Feast, World Class; an awesome Sight!
Convivialís the Atmosphere,
This Holiday we so revere;
As Famílies come from Far and Near,
With Appetites that persevere,
To help Roast Turkeys disappear!
It's Fun to be the Host sincere,
Most Loved Ones Home, all gathered Here;
Toast Drinks; fine Food; best Friends; good Cheer;
Yet Wear and Tear; no Rest, severe,
Methinks, Iíll be, your Guest, next Year!
