Autumn is here. When I think of autumn, I think of the beautiful colors, that God used to paint the landscape. I see green,yellow,orange, brown and red. Everytime that I take a ride in the country site, or go up on the mountains, or forest preserves. Come with me, lets go for a ride. Lets you and I explore the sites. We will enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature. It is free for you and me. We will watch how the leaves fall from the trees. They will come by the thousands and fall everywhere, while the wind plays a beautiful song. All the leaves will dance until they drop, in the sunlight and shine of the moon. They will form a carpet of beautiful colors, so that we can enjoy each autumn...

    DAnce until they drop!! Oh my that is so cool to put that line into a poem. It's such a common expression but I don't think I have ever seen it cleverly inserted into a fall poem before!! Congrats on your win with this pretty poem.

    OMG! What a nice penned piece! It's really marvellous. This is the best part for me: 'They will form a carpet of beautiful colors' I imagine that carpet full of colors of nature made by God. Thank you for sharing. Love, Khalid.

    I think Russell is going to thoroughly enjoy this captivating description of lovely autumn. It's so nice to see two new poems from you when I come here tonight!

    Nice descriptive write, Lucilla. Just one thing: in your first verse, you have ended a sentence with the preposition "with". It is considered improper grammar to end a sentence with a preposition. Just a suggestion: how about changing that line to, "When I think of autumn (use lower case a, "autumn" is not considered a proper noun), I think of the beautiful colors that God has used to paint the landscape"?
