The Blush Of Apples

Those eleven apples
A seasons festoon
Green slowly defeated
And blush triumphant
So apples ripen
An aide existential

Innocent they'll fall
Picked or blown
The natural way
As things go
The Autumn conclusion
Sung in unison

    well, i had to look up festoon; it's good. existential is more difficult for me to deal with; a lot more difficult. do ripening apples act as an aide..............to bring Autumn to a close?
    do you want seasons or season's; i vote for season's.

    i especially enjoyed:

    Innocent they'll fall
    Picked or blown
    The natural way

    in california, we are making applesauce at home now from backyard apples. yes, they are nice to look at, but eating the all-natural applesauce is even better. thanks for sharing. :) bri (Report) Reply

    This is quite lovely. The plain, yet beautiful subject is caressed perfeclty by the free form of the poem. I admit I am a little biased when it comes to the season Autumn because it is my name =) (Report) Reply

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
