That Year's Autumn Leaves - Poem by Yoni Assis

Darling, do you remember that year's autumn leaves?
Perhaps it was your aura, but they were the prettiest and keenest I've ever seen
Strolling through the park, hand in hand, the foliage crunched lightly under our feet
Such a simple, yet transcendent, treat

That year's autumn leaves were red and gold
Thinking of them now strikes a pleasant, if somewhat melancholic, chord
The days you walked with me like the Lord
And you were

That year's autumn leaves and you
Contentedness shared by us two
Harmonic Convergence bestowed on the lucky few
Peace of mind that I knew

Nat King Cole said it best: 'Since you went away the days grow long…'
This is evidenced by many of my poems and songs
Many people, sometimes myself, think I should stop, that it's wrong
The creative outlet, however, is too strong

That year's autumn leaves were actually summer daze
I just love the original song, and now this unique turn of phrase
Both recall an almost alien phase
Mr. Mercer, I give you all the praise

That year's autumn leaves were you
They may not have existed, but it's a metaphor any romantic would die for
I would
Would you?

That year's autumn leaves were the best autumn has ever produced
At least until we walk in the park in the fall again…or whenever you choose

    Sherri, this is a sequel to 'Misty, ' and also the second to last 'ryhmers.' 'Where Is She? ' was the last one. 'Ballad of the Power Couple, ' and the three Dialogues were all written afterwards. If you want to check out an amazing poet, do a search on S/J Goldner. (Report) Reply
