It’s Time

Time to turn on the heat
as the night time temperature plummets, 
and morning arrives in darkness
with a grimace in lieu of a sparkling smile.
Time to say goodbye to the once lush impatiens
that now languish drooped and forlorn.
Time to reach for jeans and sweaters
and locate all but forgotten gloves.
Time for pumpkins on the steps,
and ghosts and goblins at the door. 
Time to gather around the hearth
and be grateful for the warmth.


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
