Summer slowly rusts away in copper-plated sighs;
Flowers nod their heavy heads and curtsy their good-byes.
Wind discovers secret nests, undressing hidden lairs;
Leaves, ashamed, blush scarlet veins, and tiptoe down the stairs.
I wish you happy new week!
Thank you Sissy! You, too! 😉
what colorful words … tiptoeing down the stairs … I think I can hear them 🙂
Me too! 😉 Thanks Heidi!
I just loved this, Melody!! One of the things I do like about fall is seeing all the bird and squirrel nests when the leaves fall away!
ME too! Thanks Debbie…
Lovely images 🙂
Thank you! It helps me to focus on the beautiful things during this season, so I don’t freak out about the winter that comes after it.
Hoarding the bright colours like a magpie 🙂
That’s me! 😀
Oh, the duvet is out on my bed and the heating has reluctantly been switched on as I feel the pinch of winter approaching. Loved how your poem says a fond farewell to autumn who’s played her part.
WE got our first helping of snow today – and I wasn’t expecting it, so ended up scraping my windows with my health card. When WILL I learn? 🙂
A real apple cider stirred with a Cincinnati stick as a pen! BEAUTIFUL !
Gorgeous! What a thought!
You can never have too many Fall poems. I really like this one.
Thanks! I’m finally learning to appreciate this season more.
