Autumnal Equinox - Poem by shimon weinroth

Sighing summer hot and tired
Surrenders, gives in bows out
Colors dim, glaring yellows
No longer shine so bright

All in between, an interim
Seasons changing of the guard
Hovers, heralding a cooler
Pleasing pleasant pleasure

Day turns to night and night today
Horizons mellow opposites blend
Marking ushering
An era of change

Time carried on the magic carpet
Into the world of soft pastels
Hopes and wishes each year's
New and unfamiliar

Winging amongst the clouds
Singing amidst the busy din
Autumn is here
The covenant is upheld

    When I read this, I could see the scene you're describing; which is the ultimate goal in any descriptive piece. One suggestion: find something else for time to be carried by other than a 'magic carpet'- it makes the line sound amateur. Also, the 'convenant is upheld' seems kind of just thrown in there. A piece so endearing as this one should have a strong ending to suit it. Beautifully written otherwise. Don't hate me for my suggestions- Foster (Report)Reply
