A little poem

quincy market, boston

(OKAY. I just tried, for forty-five minutes, to write a tender and picturesque poem about the beautiful season that we're about to greet. But being out of English class for over 5 years, or plain incompetent at writing, I really can't seem to get it right. AH! So after much frustration, I can only explain my feelings in prose.)


The air smells of leaves.
Leaves that are more magnificent as they pass their last moments.

The day is getting shorter.
The sun is in a hurry to leave, but is generous with its colors as they tint the sky for departure.

The weather is chilly.
As the temperature drops and the wind chills, hearts are even warmer as couples hold a little tighter.

The kids, whether aged 5 or 55, move on.
Beaches and summer vacation is traded with trick-or-treating and Thanksgiving dinner.

A new look.
Bright flowers are gone and Autumn hues are here. Milk and honey is changing its colors to bring some Fall cheer!


So yes! In light of this wonderful season, milk + honey cafe will be undergoing a major transformation, so please be patient with the tweaks and fixes I'll be doing for the next couple weeks. But be very excited! You'll fall in love with the new design! Heehee! Thank you!!
