Falling Into Autumn~

August is buttoning up all of her sunshine
Her southern winds are changing direction
While her daylight hours are growing shorter
As the month of September vies for our attention;
Grey clouds now embellish her once blue sky
While a new northern wind now cools her days
Mornings now welcome a crisper lawn-covered in iced dew
Her dusk is now tinted in pure amber rays;
Moving on through to September & her equinox
Preparing herself for the changing colours of her tree's
Leaves-burnished-gold-russet lay upon the ground
As she gradually falls into Autumns and it's first freeze;

While i love Spring and Summer -Fall is always welcome as it offers us - who live in hot, hot climates a most wonderful break...if we are lucky an indian summer with temps that we are comfortable with - it always is a beautiful time - enjoy tremendously the bold, rich colours.

    This poem is so extravagantly beautiful in all of descriptions
    of Autumn. I especiall love this time of the year as the sweltering
    heat is about to cool down soon. The trees start to shed some of their
    leaves and the foliage is most colorful. I have three poems called
    Snowflakes, Diamonds in the Sky and Just Imagine. Please taker
    a look. Enjoyed this. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
