Poem for Autumn: My Favorite Season

  

Autumn

Season of splendour,

The earth, again laying it’s head down,

preparing for the long winter sleep ahead.

The Stillness, palpable,so serene….everywhere.

                                                   

But for now,

Mother Nature’s paintbrush is busy.

With brilliant palette of crimson and gold.

The forest, so peaceful yet alive with color.

The late summer sun, still warming the days.

                                                                      

My favourite season.

It’s beauty, far surpassing the others.

A magical time, of awakenings and endings.

Like no other, a joy to once again rediscover.

                                                                        

As the earth drifts off to it’s rest, once more.

So to are we also reminded of another year’s passing.

And of changes, inevitable, required in all things.

And to everything, there is a season,

and a reason, we will find,

for all.

                                                          

Autumn,

It’s loveliness and wonder endures.

To come for another year, to dazzle and delight.

We put away our thoughts, no NOT yet!!!

Of the winter chill ahead.

There is so much to enjoy, right now.

So much beauty to behold.

Warming us.

Touching our very souls.

  3. What a beautiful poem and tribute to Autumn! It’s my favorite season, too. Unfortunately we have very few deciduous trees here; our trees are mostly evergreens, so I don’t get to walk through the fallen leaves and make a lot of crunchy noises like I did when living in central New York. I love OR, but I miss the colors. Thanks for the picture and a peek “back East.” 🙂
