“You will find as you look back upon your life,

That the moments when you have truly lived,

Are the moments when you have truly loved.”


Henry Drummond



Music: Autumn Time



The day had dawned magnificently

A gorgeous, sun-filled, October day

My spouse and I looked at each other

“It’s gotta be time for a trip to the bay.”


Our dogs had instinctively sensed our mood

They somehow knew they were now in luck

They absolutely adore long rides of any kind

All of them quickly jumped into my old truck


Several hours later, we had now arrived

At our designated get-a-way, on the bay

A rustic little place that time has forgotten

Nature’s magnificent colors now on display


When my spouse and I had first met

We spent a lot of time here, by the bay

In a very cozy little cottage on the water

A place we truly loved to visit and to play


Our favorite very quaint old Christmas Shoppe

The tiny romantic restaurant down by the sand

The pub, where we drank and danced each night

Our little place of magic between woman and man


Leisurely strolls and swims along the sandy shore

Spring fishing excursions that filled us with delight

Skiing and ice skating when the frost of winter came

Gazing up into the vast northern sky in the moonlight


We had quickly become captivated by this place

In all four lovely seasons, in all types of weather

It is a place, that holds many truly fond memories

It’s a place, we have always loved visiting together


This Fall’s get-a-way was no exception

As we strolled along the shore, in awe

Rejoicing in Autumn’s wondrous colors

So very grateful to be here with our dogs



The day had dawned magnificently,

A gorgeous, sun-filled, October day;

My spouse and I looked at each other,

“It’s gotta be time for a trip to the bay.”



©Bayside Autumn 2010, Mr. Ed

I always liked a spot near Marquette. Sort of looks familiar. Patrick

... sure has... today and every day as far as I'm concerned... Love the feel of enrichment and blessing that this poem oozes, Dad. Four years' on and I'm STILL pinching myself to make sure I'm not dreaming my idyll here on the Dorset coastline. Truly living and loving every moment and feeling totally spoilt! And money can't buy what it gives. Priceless! :)) xx
