Changing Seasons


Trees begin to shed
their clothing
leaves change colors

Turning brown then
gold
falling from their
homes
to be blown away

They stand alone
bare in distress
for all to see

The wind whistles
through the pines
there's a chill in
the air

Close the door
gently
days become bitter
cold
winter has arrived.

    My favorite time of the year.
    When all is at a loss it is all my gain.
    The crisp cold air of blue autumned skies,
    The rosie red cheeks cold to our touch.
    The frosty breath one breathes at dawn.
    And the cold that takes one's shoulders and shakes and shivers.
    Dwell on that. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
