Autumn

Rating: 2.7

I Saw old Autumn in the misty morn
Stand shadowless like Silence, listening
To silence, for no lonely bird would sing
Into his hollow ear from woods forlorn,
Nor lowly hedge nor solitary thorn;—
Shaking his languid locks all dewy bright
With tangled gossamer that fell by night,
Pearling his coronet of golden corn.

Where are the songs of Summer?—With the sun,

Oping the dusky eyelids of the south,

I like the personification of fall. In the misty morn, FALL, stood shadowless like silence. Fall shakes his languid locks, full of cobwebs, and where’s a crown of corn. Great descriptive language: woods forlorn, solitary thorn The sun opens the dusky eyelids of the south. Shade and silence awaken (in the summer that is) Fall where’s a crown of faded flowers.

This is a panoramic view of autumn. Something I noticed, though, is that the poem begins referring to autumn with the prnoun his and ends by referring to it as her and she. - GK

In silence in magical mood seeing autumn at misty morning and feeling essence is great perspective. On panting wings through the inclement skies birds chirp with love and hope. Sorrows go far and light gives joy. An excellent imagery of autumn is greatly painted here from deep perception. ..10
