A poem for Autumn

A poem for Autumn

Falling leaves in autumn

Autumn cascade

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.

Anita Williams
