I love the season of autumn – it inspires poetry and writing and crafting and baking and ….the list goes on and on…
It was also my mum’s favourite season and I am constantly reminded of her during this time.
Well, I was so inspired that I have not one but two poems for you.
One, is well, a poem (its not a sonnet or anything fancy or the like) and the other one is a Haiku 🙂
In each fallen leaf
Is a colourful story
Of a year gone past…
In every leaf is a memory
Of the year that’s gone on by –
Of things that have made us happy,
Or things that have made us cry.
Each leaf would have a tale to tell –
If it could only speak:
Of people and animals passing
As they go about what they seek.
The beautiful season of autumn
With hues of red and gold,
Reminds us of the season to come
Of mist and of the cold.
The soft carpet of fallen leaves
Provides a fun-filled play
For little girls and little boys
As they kick the leaves away.
I love the season of autumn
The sights, the smells, the sounds.
I love falling conkers
All lying on the ground.
The sight of wonderful colours
The smell of pumpkin pie
The sounds of the geese flying overhead,
And the squirrels scurrying by.
Autumn to me is a prelude
To my favourite time of year
The beautiful season of Christmas.
With happiness, love and cheer.
