Autumn's Breath

Breathing in autumns air is refreshing to my soul
I'm in awe of beauty surrounding me, as I leisurely stroll
Colourful leaves dancing, doing their best to cajole
Throwing caution to the wind, down the hill I roll

Now leaves are sticking to my clothes and in my hair
Actions of a child, but priceless is the smile I now wear
Foliage of orange, red, yellow, green and brown everywhere
Trees rustling their pleasure, joyfully rejoicing at my flair

The wind picks up, whistling natures sweet tune
A slight chill is in the air for it's now late afternoon
The sun strives to shine brightly, glistening off the lagoon
Days are getting shorter and earlier rises the moon

An exquisite valley beckons, an enclosed paradise retreat
Sitting against an ancient oak, resting my weary feet
A beautiful sight to behold, not an inch marred by concrete
Now special place to come, when one wants to feel complete.

    Amazing poem, I really loved it! I enjoyed all of the imagery, and I liked the rhyme scheme you used. Very nicely done!....I love autumn, so I just had to enter the "Autumn's Breath" contest, too!....Thank you for reading my poem, "I Am En-Titled To Love", and for the kind comments. I really appreciate it!

    Cecilia, this is beautifully done. The rhymes are pleasant as is the walk you have created/imagined/described. There is something special about places where only nature's sounds and sights are heard and seen. The last line is great.
