On the Longfellow bridge

On the Longfellow bridge
(Street lights)

The Autumn leaves shift colors in the breeze
and some, above the land, will travel far
as whisperings inside the woods appease
through nature's flawlessness transmit, and mar.

Effulgent hence, the light diffuses fore
the sun deluges neath the distant ridge
and offers the impression we lived yore,
October was, on the Longfellow bridge.

The twilights of the Autumn so expand
to hail the stars on Massachusetts towns;
my freshman attitude enfold, unplanned,
while lithe the night the street lights casts and crowns.

Effulgent so, the street lights blink before
the night retreats beneath the distant ridge
and offers the impression we lived yore,
October is, on the Longfellow bridge.

    Giorgio, I read this again. And now I could perceive this,, as the backdrop changes from daytime through dusk.. the street lights blinking, the bridge, and the retreating night! Great aesthetic appeal in this poem and love the S3L3!
