Autumn colours weep

A sodden tear is swept away

Russet leaves jump and leap

But some on the ground just lay.

Red, brown and yellow leaves take over the green

These are the only colours now seen.

The skies are grey; a cloudy expanse

A colour that has no romance.

It rains most Autumn days

The sun shine is pushed away.

Morning frost on grass

On which children play

They laugh and scream

Throughout the day.

The snows don't come until Winter

Yet already it is getting colder

Soon the leaves will be gone

Covered by the Winter snows.

        You are painting a vivid word picture of autumn, I do like it. Brings up memories of the beautiful maple leaf colors every fall in Quebec.

        • Bibbeck

          Glad you appreciated this Fred. Thank-you.

          Good write, certainly better than the lesson.

          • Bibbeck

            Thanks Goldfinch. Thankfully I did take notice in some lessons though. ;-)

            I used to not enjoy the Fall and Winter, but your poem reminds me how much I love the seasons!
