    What a heart touching landscape of the Autumn mist Song you have painted on the canvas of paper. Such beautiful words in praise of this wonderful season, when falling leaves stir our mind and soul and the fragrance of the falling leaves fill our heart with its intoxicating wine. Great write my friend. My good wishes for your contest entry and many thanks for your lofty comments on my Poem 'Take me away but I promise to sing a Song'. Love & best wishes ..Ravindra...

    Now this Crystalline is a show stopper for sure! Decrescendos is a most perfect word to serve as a prelude to the second line... "autumn mist sings on tippy toes" makes it stand out as a winner. You must be a musician. I studied piano and love what this poem says. Great write my friend. CR

    Hey, I'm glad you like the poem. It has no music to it but I am always looking to collaborate with musicians. I write for a rock band at the moment and a woman who lives in Australia (ok she has not replied for a while). X
