Autumn Colors: The Despair of Bathilda the Brown

 

The Despair of Bathilda the Brown

Oh, the deep, dark despair of Bathilda the Brown!
Her days were numbered from the first day she sprouted.
She’ll destroy her last looks with a dreadful, damp frown.

Her ev’ry dear neighbor is painted like a clown,
She hears the laughter as her name, it is shouted.
Oh, the deep, dark despair of Bathilda the Brown!

Autumn Colors 16 SEP: The Life and Times of Leif the Red

 

The Life and Times of Leif the Red

I am Leif the Red, born at the top of a tree!
I have been here since May, ere long I shall escape.
Autumn calls with icy winds, soon I shall be free!

When I was born, I was light green with bel-esprit.
I spread and grew to be a solar-drinking cape.
I am Leif the Red, born at the top of a tree.
