Autumns Garden


Granite sky weeps its tears
Over leaves and grasses
No relief from blue skies
Can be found in this day

Colours fade to red and gold
Before they slip away from us
Drifting like snow upon streets
To be kicked up in happy mood

Bare earth appears between
Flowers come no more here
In autumns garden rarities
Grace the beds and borders

The beauty of the seasons passes
Rolling into one long parade of joy

    Fiona, take a walk in my autumn garden called Hard Cider. I think you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed this lovely one on yours.

    A lovely nature poem, I love the changing of the seasons too, our spring is with us with lots of colour in our garden, with a promise of much more to come. 10+ (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
