Lovely Lady, Lovely Autumn

"Lovely Lady, Lovely Autumn"
                   By Rachel Heffington

Lovely lady, lovely Autumn
May I take a lock of hair
From the tresses that glow, burnished
In the sumac over there?

Lovely lady, lovely Autumn
You're bewitching when you're dressed
In your gown of amber elm leaves
With a hint of rose caressed.

Lovely lady, lovely Autumn
Do you blush at my advance?
For I see a crimson on the boughs
Of maple as they dance.

Lovely lady, lovely Autumn
You are such a gorgeous lass
With you eyes of bluest heaven
and your shoe of greening grass.

Lovely lady, lovely Autumn
You have stole my heart away--
How I longed for, how I wept for you
On Summer's hottest day!

    Rachel! This is awesome! The most beautiful poem I have read in a very long time. Thank you for sharing this delight. I was commenting on Richard's poem when I saw your comment so thought I would check out your poetry and so very glad I did. Both this poem and yourself will go into my favs. (by the way I like winter in moderation too. I figure about 3 days ought to do it! : ) )
