Up in the Autumn Air

Up in the autumn air, I swoop and glide - a sleek black bird with tail feathers tipped white. Bright leaves on wind beneath me gaily ride up in the autumn air! I swoop and glide on freedom’s wings, and beauty magnified surrounds me radiantly on my flight. Up in the autumn air, I swoop and glide - a sleek black bird with tail feathers tipped white. An orange leaf tinged yellow-gold am I - twirled happily up in the autumn air with comrade leaves. I dance beneath blue sky. Above - a sleek black white-tailed bird glides by! Below me, all the earth is bright and fair. An orange leaf tinged yellow-gold am I - twirled happily up in the autumn air. (Triolet using iambic pentameter, instead of 8-syllable lines) Written Oct. 19, 2012 by Andrea Dietrich For Russell Sivey's Up in the Autumn Air Poetry Contest
