Let my eyes celebrate the changing hues When canopies display their lovely blends, While leaves transform, embracing vivid views Let colored leaves fly in fresh autumn winds. As sweet summer's season slowly transcends There's glory seen in a crimson sunrise. Susurrate sounds make music in cool skies. Steps hold cinnamon leaves in amber light As days pass, in umber shades, they lay dead. Pumpkin patches of fire welcome night As Luna rises putting them to bed. With silver clouds in lapis skies she's wed. Harvesting seasoned saffron at its height, Its ginger strands are part of fall's delight. © Connie Marcum Wong 9-25-17 AUTUMN RHYME ROYAL Premier Contest - Second Place Sponsored by: Dale Gregory Cozart | Amber,Cinnamon,Crimson,Fire,Ginger,Pumpkin,Saffron,Umber

Oh, I'm in love with some of the lines and enthralled by the poem in its entirety. Your skills shine with more colors than Autumn herself provides. Did laugh once cause moments ago I looked at my front porch and saw, "Steps hold cinnamon leaves in amber light " Love this and you ... CayCay

Thank you for cheering me Jo. I found out that I have degeneration in a disc from age and arthritis and just have to live with the pain. I do what I can. We all have our health issues as we age. I am pretty healthy other than having to deal with arthritis. I feel fortunate. I am so glad you like this. I hope the sponsor will too. This may be the first rhyme Royal I have ever written. : )

What a beautiful Autumn poem, Connie: You have used the words so seamlessly. I know this will be judged high. Miss you sweet friend. Still recovering from a nasty virus I picked up on the airplane. Grrrrr Hugs, SuZ

I learned about saffron and how it must be harvested in one day. That's why these contests are good. They compel us to look up things and keep learning. I so appreciate your support Michael. Thank you so much for the fave. Nite : )

You paint Autumn exquisitely Connie. The vibrant colours and imagery are akin to viewing on a large movie screen. Everything simply 'pops' and feels alive:) Truly magnificent writing... a fave...xo
