She Treads on Autumn Leaves


She treads on autumn leaves
Sipping with eyes the autumn grief
Crispy rustles, yellowing hues
Once on the tree-tops all they grew
Now wind-swept and sadly sway
And alone she walks, thoughts affray
Wish for a whisper close to the heart
A look in the eyes for the soul downcast
But only leaves sighing under-feet
And sobering air with downy beat
The dear companion, a cooing dove
Sings her autumn song high above
Mellow moments quiet gloom
Flower-beds with chrysanths bloom
Plucked and put in a blowing curl
And she ambles away in a queenly swirl

    I know this feeling, I was lonely for many many years, but the more I learned about life and learned to love myself, find hobbies, things to do every second, I love myself, my time by myself and I tell you the truth I do not wish to have anybody to argue with, because after the great love happening people picks on each other no matter what.

    Beautiful, but wait, summer still bloom and green and no leaves leaving before it green, as much no new life before past a time, our present, so do feel the moment you have...and dont let it melt for something yet it something to be missed heartfelt...liked your poem! the title so nice_Soul (Report) Reply

    Life in autumn in mellowing hues, autumn leaves under the feet and the dove singing above her autumn songs.! Amid all these she ambling away in queenly swirl! A beautiful and vivid picture! Indeed a beautiful poem Jasmeen! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
