Autumn Gold

Let autumn's feet be slow to leave
As winter white comes much too soon.
Let colors fill the eyes with warmth,
Enjoy the glow of harvest moon.

The trees in all their splendor stand
Till autumn winds coax leaves to dance.
As colors swirl my heart delights.
With every fall I share romance.

I love the crispness of the air,
The crunch of leaves beneath my feet
In scarlet, gold and pumpkin hues;
Welcome relief from summer's heat.

The rain comes tapping at my pane
With crystal diamond drops that share
The beauty of this season's soul,
A beauty that's beyond compare.

    Glorious Autumn poem , dear Connie. Great imagery. Luv, Andrea

    Wonderful fall imagery! Are there trees that turn color in Hawaii, Connie, or are you recalling autumns in other areas? North Florida sees some color change, but none at all here in Ormond Beach. It's my favorite season, too, and New England is exceptionally beautiful the first week of October.

    It really is the most beautiful season and you describe it so well!
