Ode To A Tree In Autumn - Poem by David Wood

You carried us all through Earth’s fragrant song
Did blossom from birth throughout glorious days
But we did not notice we walked on by so wrong
Now in tragic splendour your allure now decays

Chill August days slows your faint heart of fire
Russet and golden leaf crumbles in colds extreme
Fate is a metaphor of a life about to expire
Fate we all meet after life’s figment dream

Your bridal beauty now faded your life at an end
I remember your virgin charm at the onset of spring
And warm raptures when June became your friend
Now at an end your greatness now vanishing

Winter fast approaching you stand now undressed
Alas wind and storm’s echo will be your only choir
Until by Spring’s magnificence you are again blessed
When once again your noble splendour we can all admire

    Your bridal beauty now faded your life at an end
    I remember your virgin charm at the onset of spring......Deeply envisioned. Attractive and intensive narration I found in this poem so orderly presented. Many thanks dear David Sir, may God increase your imagination. ....10
