Poet's Notes about The Poem

It was the Fall of 1984, and I decided to go for a walk in Clark's Park. It is located in the northern part of Everett, Washington where I live. This poem is based upon an actual experience. The first 1984 version partly used this formate: 'Oh, The Wonder of it All! '
in the body of the text. My mom told me I used to many caps. hence
the 1986's final version. This was one of the first poems I wrote as an adult. It was one of the main reasons I have been busily composing poems ever since. Since I was born October 4,1954. I thought that a Fall poem about an Autumn leaf was an excellant idea.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I Speak Not, I Trace...
by George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
