Autumn Morn


 At last! Autumn leaves fall, scatter and rest
Under a crystal sky close enough to
Touch; adorned like a jewelled crown, my bequest,
Undenied beauty from mantle of blue.
Morning's golden showers charm and ensue.
Naked trees weep for vitality lost.
Meandering leaves are boldly embossed
Over hills and vales in brilliant designs.
Rising with the dawn, leaves fall 'til first frost.
Nature's display of rich colors entwine.

    oh, how cool, you chose a FORM to do yours in, same as I chose a form (sonnet). I love how you bold printed the beginning letters. I wanted to do that too, but am not quite sure how. How are you able to use BOTH italics AND bold print? I tried it once and those symbols clashed. I could not figure out how to employ both methods at same time!! well, anyway, congrats on your marvelous win.
