Gathering Leaves

by Robert Frost

Spades take up leaves
No better than spoons,
And bags full of leaves
Are light as balloons.
I make a great noise
Of rustling all day
Like rabbit and deer
Running away.
But the mountains I raise
Elude my embrace,
Flowing over my arms
And into my face.
I may load and unload
Again and again
Till I fill the whole shed,
And what have I then?
Next to nothing for weight,
And since they grew duller
From contact with earth,
Next to nothing for color.
Next to nothing for use.
But a crop is a crop,
And who's to say where
The harvest shall stop?

It's been a really busy summer...

We'll be getting some photos up soon!

Everyone have a safe and beautiful Labor Day~

Labor Day Holiday History: Once upon a time not so long ago we had jobs and made stuff in America and it was honorable to work (yes even manually) and workers were respected, appreciated, and one could be proud to be a productive worker in the United States of America. The 3 day weekend last hurrah of the summer we call Labor Day Weekend was a celebration of work and the workforce.

The holiday unofficially began on September 5, 1882 when 10,000 workers took an unpaid day-off to honor the labor force of America and marched from city hall to Union Square in New York City, it was the first-ever Labor Day parade. Participants, as well as onlookers could vocalize issues they had with employers. As years passed, more states began to hold these parades, but Congress would not legalize the holiday until 12 years later when President Grover Cleveland was forced to sign the holiday into law as an election-year compromise with labor. Although Labor Day began as a celebration of the American workers, the labor movement and its achievements, it additionally has come to be celebrated as the end of summer vacations, the last, long summer weekend before autumn, a day to picnic and barbecue and a signal that is time to go back to school for the students and a precursor to the harvest season for agriculture.
