Autumn Is Singing In The Hills - Poem by Alison Cassidy

Autumn is singing in the hills,
Sunshine is laughing on the breeze,
Red leaves are dancing from the eaves,
Wood-smoke is ribboning the trees.

Autumn is singing in the hills.
Pale moths are speckling the light,
Moonshine is silvering the night,
Two hearts are purring with delight.

    Great poem...I loved the way you personified autumn...nice touch. You kept it short and still captured autumn at its finest. Top marks!

    This is a spectacular and irresistible anthem of Autumn and love, Allie! ! I got the urge to get the guitar out as I was reading this.! ! I can see the red leaves and the smoke 'ribboning' away and can't help but feel the happiness you've brought to these eight simple but perfectly formed and combined lines. First rate. xxx jim (Report)Reply

    What a beautiful lyric poem. Perfectly in tune with the season.. It makes me feel nostalgic for a West Virginia autumn which is still some months away. I love it, Allie.

    Warmest regards,

    Sandra
