I haven’t posted a poem in a while, so I searched my notebooks for a poem about autumn. This one was written sometime in the fall of 1994.
With a sudden breeze you come around
And shock and surprise me
Where has summer gone?
Because it is now fall.
Tree leaves turn yellow, orange and gold
And begin the release of beauty
That fall can hold.
All the blooming flowers
So pretty and true
With a beautiful fall like this
I’ll never be blue
As long as fall is around
When the snow comes abound
And winter is cold and hard
Nothing can be seen
Not even someone’s yard
I will think of what a fall you have been
And will bring this poem to an end.
