In This Autumn of The Year

In this Autumn of the year ther' be image
Divinité illustrés....Oui, l'utopie du Poète.
Flecks and shades, a bleeding hued spray
Of Summer's closure...'cross the causway

In this Autumn of the year ther' be breeze
Whisp's feather red cheeks... tip stiff lobes
Opposement to the gusts of Winter's sting
Autumn flails its limbs on goldened wings

In this Autumn of the year ther' be rainfall
A subtle, chilling mist.....that feeds the soil
Preparing for the Harvest.....Thanksgiving
Comes mornings frost, Decembers ringing

In this Autumn of the year.....ther' be spice
Mother Natures full majesty
Hickory's flounce o'er ashed chimney tops
Country fairs, an' their sidewalk sale stops

In this Autumn of the year ther' be romance
Love, that's shared beneath Harvest's Moon
Spirit's dancing join ''Soul's'' of Hallows Eve
Cornucopia of nature- 'tis what Autumn be.
