Autumn - Poem by YOSRA BAIDI

What did autumn do to the tree?
He took off her leaves and
He made her naked, afraid
Waiting for the singing bird.

What did autumn do to the tree?
He left her soulless, facing wind
In a high stature but chilled by cold,
Nothing can warm her but a leaf and bird.

What did autumn do to the tree?
That melancholic strange season,
Which has a strong wavy impact on
her, but she bore that without complaint.

What did autumn do to the tree?
That was all about a sudden
I saw her waving, freezing alone,
While looking from the casement.

    Too bad we have our autumn also, when we get old. Anyway, let's just hope that the spring will warn the tree again. Beautiful poem, shows how good your heart is, thinking and wishing the tree well. (Report) Reply
