Not sure this is my very best, but I put it in my top seven personal favorites of poems I wrote this year.

*When with closed eyes, in autumn’s eves of gold, I lie back on soft grass and feel the sky's remaining warmth that emanates from sun, I think of all the beauty to unfold. I open up my eyes. The sun has rolled down in the sky. Now streaks of pink appear which darken to a deep and purple hue, for Mother Nature now is growing bold! There is so much of glory to behold! The mountains glow, but soon they will grow black. No matter, at the end of autumn’s days, God’s gifts by Mother Nature are extolled. And yes, it won’t be long - it will grow cold, but in December I will close my eyes recalling this. . . and I will be consoled. March 20, 2020 * My line 1 is the 4th quote given as an option to use in a contest sponsored by Joseph May Now used May 21 for John Hamilton's 'Your best poem 2020' Poetry Contest

Enjoyed this VERY much - poetically for your external rhymes, enjambment, IP, and the clever tercet at the end. You extrapolated nicely from the given quote into two themes I know are dear to your heart: nature and seasons. And isn't that final thought a comfort: our memories of warmth help us through the seasons of cold? Thank you for sharing your beautiful poetry with the Soup world. Hugs/John

Very nicely expressed. You have painted in my mind a picture of laying back, seeing and feeling Autumn unfolding.

Beautiful Autumn poem. I love all the seasons and at the time think “this is my favorite season” until the next season comes. Now I am in love with spring.
