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.
