Beautiful Sadness

"Crooning melancholy strains, Autumn bids adieu to Summer." Near August’s end, she starts to saunter in. The time has come when I will start to long for June’s sweet tune I whistled on a whim, for Autumn croons a melancholy song. While creeping in, she steals light from the sky. It’s nature’s way. She’s doing nothing wrong! She rustles through the treetops and I sigh as Autumn croons a melancholy song. She blazes brightly for a while but soon, she turns to frost and rushes then headlong to winter’s freeze beneath a harvest moon. Yes, Autumn croons a melancholy song. Beautiful sadness touches me and deep. The sadness makes me wish I could belong again in summer memories I keep when Autumn croons a melancholy song. 7/21/19 Contest: Writing Challenge 2, July 2019- Melancholy- Poetry Contest Sponsor: Dear Heart

Andrea, terrific IP poem on the sad transition from Summer to Autumn. I especially enjoyed, " I will start to long / for June’s sweet tune I whistled on a whim". Well done, and congrats for this getting POTW!

There is Beautiful Sadness around each and every Season. In some way. The way Nature turns everything around- colors fade and then softly shades. Months become years. The heart longs for brighter days. After Winter has stayed too long. You paint such vivid images with your words my dear friend. Congratulations Andrea, on Poem of the Week. :) Brandy
