Autumns Birth

Born on an autumns day 

Blue skies and butterflies

Leaves falling to the ground  

Hold me under water 

Teach me how to pray

Then I'll be on my way

As I lay here in my grave

    Debbie, thank you for your comment. I know that you are truthful--it is the politicians who are dishonest. Your poem above fooled me at first. I thought it might be about earthworms until I came to the last line. This twist in short verse takes an educational turn. It is tough to think about our demise, but you bring it forward in a beautiful way that puts life in a natural perspective. We can only hope that our offspring with thrive at least for a while without us.

    birth and death revolving on the wheel, how soon the time is passing quick, so passionate we dance the reel, cos death does come again to steal, time & again to cross, recross the styx.... ...betwixt... again the spirit deal.. till babe in arms returns, the wheel is fixed.

    The mingling of nature,faith and beauty made the last line seem natural after the initial shock of it. A profound little gem. SuZ
