In my journey to Autumn

Soft caressing breeze blowing around me 
Enveloped with summer’s fragrance
Awakening my slumber body and soul 
In my journey to the autumn 

Enveloped with summer’s fragrance
Bringing memories of spring and summer
In my journey to the autumn 
Making my days radiant with sun shine

Bringing memories of spring and summer
Wrapping me up with it's warm smile
Making my days radiant with sun shine
Bring back my joy of summer

Wrapping me up with it's warm smile
Soft caressing breeze blowing around me






This is a thanksgiving Pantoum to Suzanne Delaney and Richard Lamoureux.
If not for them I would never knew the art of Pantoum.

    Autumn is my favorite season (visually). The oranges, reds and yellows are at treat for the eyes. You are doing so well in this form, but in the last stanza I believe you are missing some lines. It can be kinda confusing, I know, but one thing that helps me remember is this, "Every single line is repeated twice".

    Thank you, When I referred in the web,for the rules one place claim it is abcd, bedf,egfh, ia. 4 stanzas In another it says: abcd,bedf,ecfa Only 3 stanzas. But as you say I feel the 2nd version is more meaningful. eevry line repeats twice. Thank you I will work out another on this rule. love

    This is lovely. I am so glad you are having fun with this form. I have just written another and I love how these expand on a theme. Very satisfying to write. Look forward to more of these.

    The poem itself is truly beautiful even if you leave it as it is.

    I think you are missing two lines in your last stanza. You are so close! Have another look at the form.
