Thrill of Autumn

The dirt filled path holds pumpkins on the farm Thrill of autumn is set with mighty charm Heart skips a beat every year at this time And sure invigorates to the sublime No matter the colors, like reds and rusts Yellows and burgundies where brown entrusts Beauty surely comes from all of these hues Evenings coming quicker with darker blues The fog is enjoyed in the morning hours Very cool mist fills all with its power Down in the valley it stays much longer The morning mist loves the fall to ponder No ravens fly this dusk with nighttime’s view Secure in knowing autumn’s peace is true
Russell Sivey

    I mistook which line you were telling me about and then when I understood , I change gilding to gold , in that one poem of mine. I really don't think it is all that important to stick to strict syllable counts when the meter sounds good, but just in case the judge is weird about it, I took your suggestion and changed it.
