Cornucopia

Cornucopia Trumpet Sounding – abundance Resounding – A harvest not Empty – a horn of Plenty – Season bounty Astounding – safe from snowbound Surroundings Fall Caressing fair autumn Blessings. Sweet orbs of Green or burgundy Seen In arbors that Wait grape clusters to Take Nectars Serene in fermenting Dreams Dew mists so Fine like sparkling Wine. Breath of Autumn whispers soft harvest Hymns Ruffles ripe Fields of grain’s golden Yield Blades salute skies Solemn - in straight rows, in Columns Kernel berries grown for Bread - we bow our Heads. Apples Reside – sweet juiciness Abides Orchard boughs Seen in ornaments red, yellow, Green Thoughts of pie Ride as cinnamon delight Glides Crisp ciders Arrive in jugs and in Jives! Frosty fall Dells painted in icy Pastels Leave a transparent Sheen on rambling vines Green Pepitas in Shells of bright orange they Dwell In pumpkins and Squash - festive fields Awash Such flavor Divine – like honey sweet Wine – Wide bottomed Orbs - sun sweetness Absorbed - A taste Refined – bliss, sublime, Intertwine – Pears Appear at the end of the Year! From blossom Wings nascent in Spring Sweet surprise Resting in hard shells Nesting Squirrels seasonal Fling – winter Investing - Walnuts and Almonds, pecans by the mill Pond 11-16-20 Contest: In Rhymes Sublime Sponsor: Joseph May
