Autumn Delights Poem by Connie Marcum Wong

Autumn Delights



Breathe in the scent of cool autumn air.
Watch it softly wafting Pele’s hair*.
Hues adorn leaves in bright vivid shades
Drinking in water as fresh rain cascades.

The wind, waltzing leaves... swirling around.
A mélange of colors quilting the ground.
A ready harvest of fruit bearing trees
Provides sweet honey, adored by the bees.

A field of ripe pumpkins ready to pick;
Halloween candy on fingers to lick.
Children in costumes for trick or treat fun
Can’t wait ‘till darkness over takes the sun.

To sit near a fire cozy and warm,
Reading poetry, no matter the form.
These are the delights that autumn will bring.
These are the things that will make my heart sing.
