The Potato Harvest, 1898
José Julio de Souza Pinto
Autumn Fires
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
..............Robert Louis Stevenson

  1. I love the painting, especially the girl's rosy cheeks. And Robert Louis Stevenson has been my favorite poet since I was five years old.

  2. Jodi,
    I don't remember when I first "met" R.L. Stevenson - but I've enjoyed his poems for very long.
    Yes, the painting is lovely!
