Our Song/Rhyme this fortnight is from Jane 

The Calendar by Barbara-Euphan-Todd

I think there are many phrases within this that might inspire you...

The Calendar

I knew when Spring was come –
Mot by the murmurous hum
Of bees in the willow-trees,
Or frills
Of daffodils.
Or the scent of the breeze;
But because there were whips and tops
By the jars of lollipops
In the two little village shops.

I knew when Summer breathed –
Not by flowers that wreathed
The sedge by the water’s edge,
Or gold
Of the Wold,
Or white and rose of the hedge;
But because in a wooden box
In the window at Mr’s Mack’s
There were white-winged shuttlecocks.

I knew when Autumn came –
Not by the crimson flame
Of leaves that lapped the eaves
Or mist
In amethyst
And opal tinted weaves;
But because there were alley-taws
(Punctual as hips and haws)
On the counter at Mrs. Shaw’s.

I knew when Winter swirled –
Not by the whitened world,
Or silver skeins in the lanes
Or frost
That embossed
In patterns on window-panes;
But because there were transfer sheets
By the bottles of spice and sweets
In the shops in two little streets.

I was inspired by
I knew when Autumn came –
Not by the crimson flame
Of leaves that lapped the eaves
and made an autumnal card.

As a background I used a paper from my stash from BeeArty. The sentiment also came from here.
The added leaves and stem are from The Dusty Attic - I added Distress Ink to these to add colour.

If you haven't already, please join our 
to stay up with all the challenges.
Thanks for playing along!

Happy Crafting!
