A Writing Journey

Poetry Corner – Autumn

Hello and good-day. I hope everyone has had a lovely week and is doing well. I wrote this particular poem on October 31st. Let me know what you think!

The summer leaves turn from green to red

And in the sunlight are kissed into gold

Before from broken branches the leaves are shed.

Seasons fade, each living though the last is dead

And though bright days we long to hold

The summer leaves turn from green to red.

Light and Dark merge as one, are wed,

In the deep autumn twilight, waxing old,

Before from broken branches the leaves are shed.

Children through the night by the hand are led.

In soft whispers of comfort the children are told

The summer leaves turn from green to red.

Fires are kindled and beg to be fed

As nights draw on into dark cold

Before from broken branches the leaves are shed.

And now in stillness, in silence – to bed.

The season fades – in Endless Waters roll’d.

The summer leaves turn from green to red

Before from broken branches the leaves are shed.

Take care, fellow travelers.
