Moonville Mae Always Falls for Autumn!

A poem by  Emily Bronte

 

They’s something kindo’ harty-like about the atmusfere

When the heat of summer’s over and the coolin’ fall is here—

but ef sich a thing could be

As the Angels wantin’ boardin’, 

and they’d call around on me—

I’d want to ’commodate ’em—

all the whole-indurin’ flock—

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock!

James Whitcomb Riley

 

Nature’s first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf’s a flower;

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost

 

That time of year thou mayst in me behold

When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang

Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,

Bare ruin’d choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.

William Shakespeare

 

They say it is the month of death,

But I have never seen such beauty in decay.

Remains of Autumn,

Still smoldering,

Cling to the branches,

And the Earth is painted a thousand shades of red.

When a heavy fog smothers the ground,

Breathe in and let it fill your lungs.

Emilie Aartsen

 

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;

Lengthen day and shorten day;

Every leaf speaks bliss to me

Fluttering from the autumn tree.

I shall smile when wreaths of snow

Blossom where the rose should grow;

I shall sing when night’s decay

Ushers in a drearier day.

I cannot say it better.

THE PRINCE, MOONSHINE, and the DARK CORNER

A history of alcohol and it’s production in the Upstate

Presented by Joe Hursey of the Smithsonian Museum and Piedmont Historical Society

11 am, Saturday, December 4, 2021

Piedmont Community Building, 3 Main Street, Piedmont, SC

Join us for a pleasant morning in the Community Building, 3 Main Street, Piedmont, to learn more about the history of alcohol and it’s production in the Upstate.  Old US 25 was called Avenue de Booze and Rummer’s Runway during Prohibition.  The Dark Corner is famous across the country and the Upstate, and Greenville played a part in its notoriety.  Learn more about how alcohol affected us all!

Joe Hursey comes to us from the Smithsonian Museum in Washington with expertise in collections and alcohol history and has spent many hours helping in the Don Roper Museum.  

We are excited to welcome Joe as a friend and expert speaker!  Free to the public.  Y’all come!
