Autumn Leaves

So green you were
during the summer,
when the sun fired down

and you provided the
shade that stole my
shadow and made the

baked days bearable.
But now, months down
time's unending river, your brown

hue marks your retirement, and soon
you shall part your home and drift down,
swaying in angelic arcs,

to the streets and sidewalks,
where a more forgiving sun shall
spill its rays from a sky

as blue as the day you were born.
But even in your passing,
you nobly give again,

carpeting driveways,
encircling pumpkins,
ushering the remarkable beauty of autumn.

Thanks, Steven. :)

Some poems I can write in 15 minutes or so.

Others take a little longer, depending on the flow and my focus.

Steven (tbones) | 408 comments I think your work is fantastic. I sent a note off to that graphic designer with the Halloween cards yesterday, Deena Warner, and told her about your poems and this site. I told her she should get you to write a poem to go with one of her pieces in the future. Maybe she'll sign up on Goodreads. She does the web design for a site called HorrorWorld.com. You should check it out sometime.

Thanks for the info, Steven, and for contacting Deena Warner. I'd be more than happy to write a poem or two for her cards--if she's interested, of course.
