In Autumn St Michael with sword and with shield,
Passes over meadow through orchard and field,
He's on his way to battle
Gainst darkness and strife
He is the heavenly warrior, protector of life.
Michaelmas is celebrated in our house with a plaited loaf, grapes and grape juice and either a warming soup or a variety of harvest sandwiches depending on the weather. Then we get to work gathering the rest of the harvest and preparing the garden for its winter rest. Enjoy your day !
