Seasonal Poem

Seasons Ebb Away 

As I sat on my back porch in my rocking chair today, I could see, feel and smell summer ebbing away.

I could hear the wind blowing softly through the trees. I could even see a few falling leaves.

I can tell by the shorter days that fall is on the way. The hot, lazy days of summer aren’t going to stay.

Blissful spring has come and gone.
The remaining days of sleepy summer won’t last long.

Glorious fall colors will soon appear.
But, like the flowers of summer they will disappear.

Winter will follow the fall as it always has.
Spring, summer and fall are again
Part of the past.

People can be compared to the seasons.
They are born, bloom, and ebb away.
Like spring, summer, and fall they cannot stay.

Winter will come as it always does.
If we are blessed, we have experienced the
seasons at their best.

Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns are a traditional food eaten on Easter Weekend or specifically on Good Friday in many countries.  There are lots of legends about the history of hot cross buns.  A common premise included in all of the stories is the “cross” of icing on the bun. Hot cross buns are lightly spiced and scattered with raisins or currants, then marked on top with a cross that’s either piped in icing or imprinted into the dough. This year Good Friday takes place on April 19, 2019 and Easter Sunday is April 21, 2019. Many businesses will be closed on these two days.
