Autumn Is Called Fall For A Reason

Rating: 4.3
The crisp autumn air is filled
With the scent of fallen leaves..
It's almost as if they're just
Cast away from their parent trees
Because they have served their purpose
Of keeping them alive.
And the oaks have long forgotten
The debt owed to them.
They just cast the leaves away
From their lives
Used and unwanted

A very well written poem.... like others said, I never really gave it much thought about leaves falling and where they go.... Great job!

This poem is short but deep, yeah autumn is beautiful but the leaves “die” every year. I didn't really think about that so far but this is reality, and reality is always somehow sad. Good work!

This poem is perfect. You made your point and didn't try to get too clever or stray away from your very powerful message. If you ever wanted to expand this out, and this is just an option, You could talk about leaves that are piled into a bunch with a rake and mulched to make new soil to feed the parent tree.

I like how you capture the death of the leaves in fall. I also like how this poem can be interpreted in more than one way and applied to other incidences of death and pushing others away. It's sad, well written and the imagery is there.

You have touched upon one of the most everlasting themes and also conundrums of nature; short life with an unsung future, yet your poem is a song for the unsung.

The phrasing and imagery are perfect and when I read it out loud the tone comes with bitter melancholy and a terrible dread that makes me want to run for someone lithium for a pick me up. This is definitely a personal fav and I could read it again and again.
