A poem for Autumn
As we marvel at the splendour
Of a scene adept in gold
Brown layered over oranges
Delighted, we behold.
Autumnal glows awakening
Shrill breezes set to raid
Those aching creaking branches
Of leaves so rich in shade.
And as the wind whips up a storm
Those leaves which tumble round
Form carpets plush with patterns
As they settle on the ground.
All shapes and sizes mixed as one
No matter from which tree
For they were born to mix and blend
For all eternity.
And we can learn so much from this
As people here on earth
Each of us born so different
Together life’s full worth.
A frenzy for our sweeping brush
But pause a while with me
For nature’s Autumn season’s
Left a feast for us to see.
