Breathtaking Autumn Poem by Practicing Poetess

Breathtaking Autumn

Rating: 5.0

Colourful leaves
Drift softly downward,
Decorate the sidewalks,
Then crunch underfoot.
School children
Make leaf-tracings
Or press them in wax paper.
Brilliant Fall foliage
To inspire the best of artists
Red, yellow, orange- - even purple.
Why can't it be Autumn
All year long?

On arrival of autumn we see beauty of nature clearly due to clearness in weather after rain. In this poem you have drawn a brilliant imagery. Really colourful leaves soft drift downward and we feel this as grace of God to Earth to renew beauty in trees. Amazing sharing is done here.10

Autumn is my favorite time of year, as evidence by the glut of October poems I've written, some of them posted herein. I always love that moment when the first feel of autumn is in the air, as came recently here in Eugene, Oregon (USA) . Even this morning was full of that mysterious change, as I sat in my car in a vacant lot and listened to a few dry leaves clattering on the pavement ~ a little unusual, because it's still too green out. I'm pining for those crunchy reds, yellows, and oranges (of the leafy variety) , but this will be the year that I discover purple! Thank you for the inspiration! ! Your poem is full of beautiful memories for me, right down to the wax paper. :)

HURRAH! I am SO-O-O-O HAPPY that you are all right! You know how we can look on friends' profiles and see the last date that they were on? You had me worried there for a short while! They referred to Irma as a nuclear hurricane. I believe that it wiped out an entire island- - nobody lives there anymore. So glad we can count you amongst the land of the living! :)
