An Autumn Day - Poem by Hazel Connelly

Floating all night on waves of clouds
Searching for what life enshrouds
Woke in the morning to the misty dew
Lost in thought of the day anew.

I gaze from the window onto the lawn
And engage my thoughts on the new dawn
The colours and signs of seasonal bliss
These are things you should not miss.

Autumn colours of red, brown and gold
The landscape before you do unfold
Trees burn bright against the sun
The afternoon is nearly done.

As the sun goes down the colours surround
Red, yellow, orange melt into the ground
Night time falls and the colours hue
Turning the sky to a deeper blue.

The moon is out in all it's glory
The stars twinkle bright and showy
As the last of the stars fade away
Comes the breaking of a new day.

    You really write well, Hazel...The exuberance of autumn really flows out of the poem...I also have a similar poem on my page, Autumn of the year 1988. (Report) Reply

    The first few stanzas reminded me of when I was a kid and did an early morning paper round.Thanks for the memories. (Report) Reply
