Love arrived in Autumn like a Spring breeze,
Out of its time and out of its season,
Its dancing spirits left me ill at ease,
And the dark shadows, taunted my reason.

The green leaves that were my days before you,
Have drifted and faded and are no more.
The naive moments of white clouds on blue,
Have become remains on the forest floor.

The light and gentle glory was divine.
There was even a glimpse of forever,
But that which I was lent is never mine, 
We only borrowed the time together.

I have heard the loveliness in a song,
And tasted the exquisite fruits and fare,
But the prize that is stolen feels wrong,
And the promise of joy becomes despair.

Love lets us believe in eternity,
Like a white bird flying across the sky,
Forever is until you discard me,
Chasing another golden butterfly.

    This write is a roller coaster of love. Happiness to sad. The feelings let the reader into your heart. Nice job

    Thought I might read some of your work, Catherine. This one caught my eyes and ears both. It has the theme of a country song with some actual meat on it...not just repetitive and skinny. Kudos to the author, I marked it as one of my faves.
