Ode to the Earth on this Fine Autumn Day
Published Oct 04 2018 in
The days can be sunny, but most likely gray during this time of the year. Our sky opens up and showers us with heavy rain drops, day after day leaving more than the petrichor emanating from the ground. Sweet moss glimmers on the trail, mushrooms begin to sprout and the lingering scent of fir and pine fill the air and help awaken our senses.
A sprinkle of snow on the mountains brings a smile to us all. Fall is here with Winter just around the corner ! She’s come fast and fierce.
Squash, pumpkins, crunchy leaves and heartwarming soups are what we think of during this time. And warmth, from a crackling fire, fuzzy slippers, or an oversized sweater. We know how to keep warm during this time of the year and take comfort in knowing our leggings will do more than just that.
You’ll blend in on the trails with the FALL leggings, attract the Whiskey Jacks with the FEISTY BIRD and well, with the newest legging to come, you’ll be blending right into the night sky...
Among The Rocks
Oh, good gigantic smile o' the brown old earth,
This autumn morning! How he sets his bones
To bask i' the sun, and thrusts out knees and feet
For the ripple to run over in its mirth;
Listening the while, where on the heap of stones
The white breast of the sea-lark twitters sweet.
That is the doctrine, simple, ancient, true;
Such is life's trial, as old earth smiles and knows.
If you loved only what were worth your love,
Love were clear gain, and wholly well for you:
Make the low nature better by your throes!
Give earth yourself, go up for gain above!
- Robert Browning
