' 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.

    What a beautifull write filled with so much color and imagery.. I am not a fan of the fall, it depresses me and always has, however you bring so many beautifull colors to mind, and show the reader a new season is yet around the corner! Excelelnt...

    Oh, my, my, my, this takes me back to the 1800s writers. How they would dine with you to converse about your detailed work. I wouldn't even doubt some of the great writers from that era praising your work. The reason why I say this is because I love the writings of the 1800s. They have left me at awe all the time. This is what I say about yours, you stand with the MASTERS. (Report) Reply
