Treasure Island

Persian Nightingale


Autumn's lips


Of his toes
Winter stands on the tips
Grazing the treetops
He reads a letter and
Suddenly trips

A spring invitation
In beautiful scented scripts
A message from the ladybird
Who lives among the rose hips

The breeze gives the letter and leaves
As she sees the ice chips
The winter will never come
If you stop kissing
The autumn's lips

    Great personification 'Autumn's lip'
    Of his toes
    winter stands on the tip
    graging the treetops
    he reads a letter and
    suddenly trips...

    I love the autumn season. The way the leaves changes colors like our eyes when that certain someone makes us tremble. (Report) Reply

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
