A Touch Of Fall


I saw a touch of fall today.
It was the morning when I walked.
The coming season to me talked.

The turning trees along the way,
Were not quite turning yet, but I
Expect to see it by and by.

The sky was cloudy, heavy, gray.
As I walked on I heard a word.
It was a bird, but that's absurd.

For birds a word they cannot say,
But in my fancy on my walk,
Imagined I the bird did talk.

    Totally enjoy nature, write about it often. I go camping just to be enveloped in nature's beauty, it recharges my batteries within, so I can handle being out in the world of people.

    Yes nature does speak to us in many ways. I have taken
    strolls through the woods and hear the birds chirping.
    This is their way of communing with other species and
    with nature. Birds talk in their on little way. Enjoyed. (Report) Reply

    A sweet, soothing poem! 10/10.
    Thanks for drawing our attention to the impending change of season and reminding us to take a break and go out for a leisurely walk. Yes, I'll do that tomorrow morning.
    I have a new poem on the pleasures of watching a bird building its nest and the accompanying thoughts around it. If possible, please do read this. (Report) Reply

    So beautiful, soothing to spirit. the last line suits it well
    Imagined I the bird did talk, and nature at it's finest.
    Yes I do, I always do walk and enjoy everything around me,
    So uplifting to our senses. This is simply the best. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
