Contest Winner Medal 1 One Autumn Night Elaine George
Beneath a moonlight black velvet sky
Where scarlet leaves from the Maple fly
On November’s  wind and breathless sighs
And a lone coyote’s distant cry
You and me where hints of winter lie
Frost nipping our toes as autumn dies
I am warmed by the love in your eyes

Elaine, Congratulations on your top win, in my Autumn Night's contest. A blessing it is to be back. I love nothing more than a free feeling of falling leaves drifting away at night. Thank you for the supporting one of my many soup contest. Stop by my latest blog "Together Alone" if you'd like. No problem if you don't have time. Just take this time and enjoy your win... LOVE LINDA
