Autumn Mood Poem by Cigeng Zhang

Autumn Mood

Rating: 5.0


Leaves are silently falling
A sea of butterfly rippling

How I want to lie down
on the sea of autumn

Recalling the dry land
I've ever walked through, and

those who cannot be forgotten
as well the fine scenery in my mind

Memorizing the persons I loved, and
those to whom I haven't said thanks

Finally let me hold the last marigold
Falling into my nearly faded dream

It's so enjoyable reading this piece, its soft tenderness and sadness haunt me hither and thither till my own autumn dream takes me flee.

Your closing lines are the perfect ending because they capture the last brilliance of things in bloom before they will succumb to autumn and fall. And you see yourself falling in a metaphorical way which links you spiritually with the season of thing falling into dormancy or death and in your human case, falling into a NEARLY FADED DREAM. This poem both relives your past but also projects into the future. This theme fits a season like autumn which is a brief transition time between BIG summer and HUGE winter.
