Autumn poem Joy

Autumn is nearly upon us and here is a poem I have written to share with all of you.

 

Nature in her wisdom

makes way for another season:

Summer acquiesces –

makes us muse upon the reason.

 

Now Autumn’s inspired paint-brush

has burnished Summer’s trees,

has stippled, veined and spotted

and prettied up her leaves.

 

Amber, scarlet, ochre leaves

drift down as light as whispers,

to kiss this mother earth of ours

like hushed and soft sung vespers.

 

The light is muted, delicate –

sky quilted grey and blue,

as Zephyr’s cheeks, extended, blow

awry the multi-coloured carpet,

oh so new.
