“ Autumn Leaves ” ~ on a shivery eve ~


As autumn leaves

A shivery eve,

Shadows fall

Upon my mind,

Obscuring shades

While vista fades,

I’m made to feel

Nature betrayed

What summer gave

In sun filled days…


Thus autumn leaves

My soul behind,

A summer hostage

Of pleas ignored

To keep alive,

Fair weather skies

And butterflies …


Soon winter’s blast

Will cast a haze,

To chase the last

Of autumn leaves,                                                        

And Frost said Jack

Will come awake

In a world grey,

And blustery wake…


Tho I’d turn back

Fall season’s clock,

Nature chose hold

Its mortal code,

For Thanatos

To now wrest

Last season’s hold

On autumn leaves,

To thus make way,                             

For winter’s cold!

      • Being a fair weather person, it always saddens me to see the last of natures colours fade to greys, that clock work reminder of Jack Frost’s white wash handy work to come. Thus a little poetic reminiscing helps soothe the imposition of winter’s short days and long nights without rushing time away. Thanks for sharing your feelings. Jean-Jacques Fournier
