'A Cool Breeze'

A cool breeze of air blew in tonight
got the extra blankets out for my bed.
Lit the furnace pilot light
I'm feeling a fuzziness in my eyes and head.

I think I'm coming down with the flu
I seem to always get this time of year.
For the chilling air that Autumn winds bring
making Autumns changes on earth everywhere.

The trees start to prepare for their winters sleep
And most all of the birds have flown away.
The leaves turn different colors of greens and orange
their colors that Autumns artistic hand displays.

I know that winter is right behind
for I can feel it in the air.
The scenes that Autumn now displays
will soon be covered with a white, like hair.

Old man time marches on
can't stop it, for many have tried.
So for now I will put an extra blanket on the bed
and turn my furnaces fire on high.

    I agree girlfriend that this is smiple yet subtle. The story of autumn's preparation for winter is a lot putting a child to bed. First he/she must have a bath, then put on their pajamas/nightgown and go to sleep, preparing to get up in the morning. Thiis a very good poem with vivid images that tells the story of winter's march.

    Take care girlfriend and thank you for sharing.

    Love & hugs,

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
