Ode To Autumn

Autumn is my favorite season,
The green leaves are turning red,
Falling with no rhyme or reason,
They are crisp, gnarled, and dead.

Lightly they fall in the chilly air,
The leaves are brown, orange, and yellow,
Brightly, they tumble without a care,
Indian summer days are beginning to mellow.

Gray clouds form, you rarely see the sun,
Through tree branches, see the cold wind blow,
The leaves come cascading down, one by one,
And, at any minute now, it could start to snow.

    Kelly The imagery and creativity you used allows the reader to feel like they are actually in this special and charming scene. I could feel the warmth and cold. I could see the beautiful colors of the leaves. Nice job Thanks for the insightful and sweet comment on my Loony Bin poem
