This Autumn Day - a constanza

The chilly north winds now abound
as Summer says her last goodbye
and takes  leave with a quiet sigh.

Whistling through trees,  melodic sound.
Canadian geese shape vee form,
 headed south to try to stay warm.

As Autumn leaves fall to the ground
swirling, twirling in a slow dance.
To show off, this is now their chance.

Red and gold blanket, 'neath trees found.
 Coloured array covers the green,
Summer's blossoms  no longer seen.

Raked into a colourful mound
for children  to jump in and play.
 Enjoy to the fullest this day.

The chilly north winds now abound,
Whistling through trees,  melodic sound.
As Autumn leaves fall to the ground,
red and gold blanket, 'neath trees found, 
raked into a colouful mound.

    Francine, your poem is so fitting the cold windy weather today. I was at a funeral of my frind's sister and the wind wipped our skins off while in the cemetery, here in Ontario, even when the sun peeked from behind the clouds. Congrats on winning with this lovely piece. One love. Joy Wells

    Francine, Congratulations on your placement in Andrea’s “Can you Constanza? Contest.” There were so many really amazing entries we had a very difficult time deciding. We had to go by who followed the form best, and whose poem was most creative. I spent 4 and half hours going over the poems and Andrea, a lot longer. Thank you so much for your wonderful entry Mahalo, Connie

    Hi Francine, I'm just in time to greet autumn in this beautiful poem. The crunch of leaves the color and scent are all hereand I just can't bear that chilly north wind you mention but I guess we face that when it comes! Hope all is well with you in your slice of heaven out there. Love Elizabeth

    Interesting rhyming scheme and wonderful imagery that makes me homesick for the US. (I live in Egypt and see more dirt and sand than anything). So thanks for painting such a beautiful picture of an Autumn day. Cheers, Terry
