An Autumn Pastoral

How is it in this meadow plush with grass
Where sturdy oaks stand holding up the sky
Their shade recedes -long summer days decry
To fade their glinting leaves to molten brass

Leaves that turn into October’s dream
Floating down as rustic butterflies
In Nature’s oft repeating Fall disguise 
Bright canvases that set first frost agleam

WOW...thanks Constance: You have lifted my spirits. I am having difficulty walking this week and so being confined to bed I got into poetry. What a wonderful escape when that happens. Hugs, SuZ

Where sturdy oaks stand holding up the sky--I see others beat me to it! that's a nice line. the meter and imagery complement one another for a very pleasant effect.
