Magpie #35 - Leaves - October 12, 2010

Magpie #35 - Leaves - October 12, 2010

A season of such beauty,
Nature's artistry unfolds,
The foliage all around us,
Reds, crimsons, even golds.

The air is fresh and crisp,
Winter snow hovers near,
Autumn leaves in brilliant beauty,
Add their notes of festive cheer.

A vibrant canopy of leaves,
Offers shelter from the sun,
Until a rising evening breeze,
Sends them flying, one by one.

By morning and the falling rain,
There are lovely leaves no more,
They have fallen from the trees above,
And lay on the forest floor.

  1. Beautiful image, wonderfully expressive words.

  2. Very nice, Carmen. I wasn't too sure what "Magpie Tales" meant, so I clicked on the link. I can't imagine writing poetry any more, and yet, when I was young, it poured out of me almost daily.
    Good for you!!

    I should be writing more, actually. Since my book was published, I've sort of taken a sabbatical.

    I kind of wished we experienced a more dramatic autumn like you must in your part of the country!
