Seasonal Poetry

Dear Liza,

I went out for a walk the other day to enjoy the colors and clear my head. Sitting with a cat on your lap, watching the fire burn, though very pleasant, makes me a bit fuzzy headed.

I bundled up, headed out, and got inspired. Here is my take on the seasons.

For The Leaves

The Spring brought us colors of blossom and bloom,

The beginnings of life, bursting forth, making room.

The summer brought jewel-colored fruits of the vine

Apples for a pie and grapes for some wine.

In Autumn the world became darker and cold,

The youth of the spring has grown up and grown old.

No longer bursting, it no longer glows

It flashes an instant before the storm blows

But just for this moment, the wind holds its peace

And leaves us to contemplate

This lovely release.

I hope you enjoy the Fall!

  1. I love your blog, your pictures and poems… but I would like to propose a slight revision to the one above starting with Autumn….

    The Autumn gives us bright colors too,
    Reds, Yellow, and Oranges in every hue.

    Not colors of spring but bold just the same
    Vibrant and glorious, nowhere near tame.

    In Winter the world becomes darker and cold,
    The youth of the spring has grown up and grown old.

    But this we endure, cuz we know what it brings,
    New life is coming, soon, forth it will spring!
