The elfin Autumn has conspired

To fashion herself

As a kaleidoscope

She hopes

To dazzle the admiring sun

To have him with his crystal elegance

Spin her round

To facet her colours

Into a glorious dance

    A fine write Laura. Now, shall we call it Fall or Autumn? But what rhymes with 'Autumn'? Tum-tum. lol. Now how on earth can we do a rhymed poem out of that?! lol.
    Try this:
    It was a day of Autumn
    And I was hungry, with a rumbling tum-tum!
    (I talk some rubbish, I know!). lol.

      Tum tum too roo
      Tum tum too ray
      Orchi's on a roll today

      • orchidee

        Erm, an especially waffly day for me? Am I over-doing it with my rubbish? Do I always?! heehee.

      • Fay Slimm

        Lorna you have wrapped Autumn in elegant skirts of vivid fantasy - well done and first rate writing my friend.
