Love arrived in Autumn like a Spring breeze,
Out of its time and out of its season,
Its dancing spirits left me ill at ease,
And the dark shadows, taunted my reason.

The green leaves that were my days before you,
Have drifted and faded and are no more.
The naive moments of white clouds on blue,
Have become remains on the forest floor.

The light and gentle glory was divine.
There was even a glimpse of forever,
But that which I was lent is never mine, 
We only borrowed the time together.

I have heard the loveliness in a song,
And tasted the exquisite fruits and fare,
But the prize that is stolen feels wrong,
And the promise of joy becomes despair.

Love lets us believe in eternity,
Like a white bird flying across the sky,
Forever is until you discard me,
Chasing another golden butterfly.

    Children like you should be obscene and not heard.

    Now here, your use of rhyme is just right. The poem is much easier to read, and the point of the poem comes across perfectly! I would tighten it a bit by making the rhythm perfect, too. And, remember, Catherine, I do not speak by example, since I have written both loosely and very tightly when the subject was conducive to it. Nor do I speak as a teacher (though I once was)--just another schmo. :-)

    Thank you for reading. It's a shame you are incapable of "feeling" anything.

    Very exquisite write. I call this “poetry” in fact. : ) You write so impeccably and eloquently. Great writing portrayed here. You know…the poem you commented on was describing a character and she is a bitter one at that. That’s why I sound negative and bitter ‘cause I’ve transformed into her in that verse/prose/whatever you label it as. Brilliant beginning to end and extremely flowy. Keep up the fanciful writing and check out my “less” bitter and more “verse-like” poems if you dare. xD I can read your poem backwards and it still makes sense. Maybe you can write it that way too (just a suggestion though take it or leave it). A little revising if it’s backwards though! Haaha
