When sunlit days
become lost in shade,
and all that was verdant
becomes windswept jade,
withering leaves become
gold and brown, summer’s reign 
at last,has lost her crown!

    harry, when I typed in my name with word footles, it brought me to number 15, so I figured those must have been the last ones and that's why I labeled 16 for my last footles post. I am sure I have many more stored away, but right now I can only find five more that I need to post from my personal files. Were you here a long time ago when Brian did a footle contest and introduced us to that form. I really had fun with them. I was on a car trip 2 years ago and did oodles of them that day!!!

    I am seeing so many poets have done constanzas now but am too afraid to glimpse the titles and have them stay in my mind while I try to stay impartial. YIKES it is so hard!!

    oh, and Bonhomie means good naturedness. The sun is a jolly fellow beaming down on us and gifting us with "good natured-ness" or affability. It was in my rhyming dictionary when I was looking for rhymes on that poem. What would I do without my rhyming dictionary?

    Radiant colorful picture of an autumn day.
