Autumn Reverie

Shifting haze, so slowly trailing
Through wood and field, now veiling
Melancholy skies, holding back the tears
With wild geese flying to meet other years.
Flames of crimson torches come flinging
Leaves on knarled branch swinging; 
Desolate winds rush leaping
Taking flowers to their final sleeping.
In the groaning of the atmosphere
Unfolding sorrows weep with the fading year;
Fields of cluttered stubble are tangled
With rampant weeds, dew drop spangled.
Flocks of birds leave like flying missiles
Over fields of corn and drying thistles;
Then my dream of autumn fades, paling
Through a grandeur all prevailing
When sunset fires light sky and sea
And sink in the breath of serenity.

Reading your Poem Elizabeth is always a joy not only in reading your wonderful lines, but also to become a part in that joyous painting. I wonder how you hold so much of wealth and spread, its colors in your sweet and melodious writes. Matchless beauty is overflowing in almost every line of this beauty. "Melancholy skies, holding back the tears, With wild geese flying to meet other years." It is going to be another fav. of mine my friend. Conti. on next.

OHHH, another delightful rhyme, I love the nature rhyme and this one is sublime. So many great rhyming lines I can't say which I like the most; these are tops though:flinging-swinging, leaping-sleeping and possibly my favorite, missiles-thistles
