Ode to Autumn

Earth’s sphere of fire bids adieu to me

As dying embers gleam across the sea

In rare hues reflected by autumn trees,

Swirling in motion with October’s breeze.

I feel the joy this season has to share

In golden harvest that the branches bear,

And I am thankful for this blessed year,

For divine abundance I share so dear.

The sun and moon take on a special glow

As thunder clouds move swiftly with the flow.

Yes, autumn coaxes feelings to revive,

Those mem’ries of past seasons still alive.

When autumn spreads her dress of lacey frost

I know, in breathless beauty, I’ll be lost.

    Autumn is my favorite season. All the things you mention can be sensed--more than seen, heard, felt--by just sitting quietly and feeling the world slowly going to sleep all around. Magical isn't it? I loved reading this.

    I loved this poem as well as the other two. Especially the two stanzas, "waltzing leaves swirling around, a melange of colors quilting the ground". Please check out my poem , Autumn Child Ralph Sergi

    I'm glad you commented on my poem Connie, as it gave me a chance to witness this lovely piece. As I read, I could image various scenes of places where I've been around October time. You've penned a gem with this one, James :)

    The colors of Autumn are flashing in each and every line of this Great write my friend. Autumn is the season which always fascinate me, but in your Poem you have spread the colors of autumn so elegantly and brilliantly that it is difficult not to take a dive in its coolness. It goes as my favorite one Connie. Hope you are keeping very fine. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra K Kapoor
