Fall Colors


A special season’s here again
One I love so much
For colors are their most brilliant
Like the strokes of an artist’s brush

Sunsets are their brightest
As fall flowers take a bow
Everything is changing
There’s a chill in the night time now

There’s earthy sweetness in the air
Apples plopping to the ground
Colors are changing everywhere
Drying leaves make a swishing sound

We know just around the corner
Holidays are near
And as that time approaches
Excitement fills the air!

    Very lovely Marilyn...believe it or not, Autumn is my favorite time of the year even though I suffer from seasonal depression(see my poem 'Seasonal') but I really do love it and have fond memories of it...I think its the contrast and the 'excitement' that fills the air...you captured that feeling very eloquently...Coach (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
