The summer season is fading away
Air now cooler and easier to breath
Sun retires early a much shorter day
Autumn is coming and gathering speed

Summers foliage is now changing colour
Multi shades of red with orange and gold
Nature on landscape paints us a picture
A masterpiece that’s a joy to behold

Farmers are busy from morning till night
Gathering their crops ripened in the sun
A harvest moon rising providing light
They work at their task until it is done

Summer warm days are now a memory
But autumn beauty is awesome to see.

Hello Tom, Your sonnet here is wondrously-conceived and marvelously-done!! The imagery from your word picture is superb. From your words, one can literally see, feel, touch, and imagine the "autumn beauty" you speak of. Excellent!! Best Wishes, Gary

Tom, you write a beautiful poem about my favorite season of the year - my kind of poetry. Many thanks for stopping by to read about the Frustrated ET and you are right, I don't blame him for fleeing after the mess of things we have created here on earth. Best to you - bob

You are painting, with your adept pen, an amazing landscape that of autumn! We can feel the "cooler air" which is "easier to breathe".. so many wonderful lines adorning your amazing Sonnet Tom. Great work of art! A FAV. Be blessed always.
