Comes the Autumn

But it brings along

Flowers which are

In their own beauty



There is the Tuberose

White and graceful

In its own loveliness

And means desire


There is the Chrysanthemum

Which I’ve always adored

There in its beauty

And tells us of fidelity and optimism





Along comes the Dendrobium Orchid

Sweet smelling and delightful

Blossoms forth in purple lovliness

And love and beauty



Next up in our parade

Comes in white loveliness

And sweet smelling grace

The Anemone with anticipation






From there we travel

Along the path

To the Alstormeria

Which speaks of friendship and devotion






There is a flower

So wondrous

It is the Amaranthus

Which speaks of immortal love









The Water Lily

So lovely upon glistening ponds

Tells us of understanding

And the purity of heart









There is the Gladiolius

In snow white purity

Which speaks to us

Of strength and morality








Another lovely flower of Autumn

Which has its own beauty

Is the Salvia

And reminds us of thoughtfulness







Finally we come

To another beauty

That in its white grace

The Hydrangea tells us of compassion




Along with the loveliness

Of these autumn flowers

We have the magnificent

Sight of falling colorful leaves

The last splash of color before winter has its way with the natural world. Lovely poem my friend; I hate to see the colors leave us but such is life. Great job!

Beautiful flowers and a beautiful poem. Still, winter brings it's own color scheme as lights reflect off a new fallen snow. My favorite two seasons of the year are coming. Makes suffering through the heat worth it all. Great job!

Oh, this hub is SO daintily beautiful and mesmerizing and the florals of autumn are calling me to look into them soon. It's time perhaps to bring them home in our backyard garden...again, soon...very soon. Lovely poem, Gypsy Rose!

Most of my favourite flowers are in the spring. But there are a few in the Autumn like the hydrangea and anenome and the sunflower which always seems like a late flower to me because it's this time of year when you can get the flower heads and store them for seeds. If you twist the stem through a fence the flower head will dry out and birds will enjoy the seeds for days. But, it does make a mess and some seeds will sprout the next year - I make sure to use the fence at the back where I don't mind the mess.

Gypsy Rose Lee 4 years ago from Riga, Latvia Author

Thanks for commenting That Grrl. I think fall flowers are great because they are the last before the winter comes. My mom was a great fan of fall flowers. However I do agree that spring flowers are so pretty and nice to see when the snows have all melted away. Love sunflowers but never had any luck with growing them.

This is such a lovely poem. My chrysanthemum blooms are tiny right now, but they are growing rapidly. I am anxiously awaiting their full growth. The other favorite in my garden is the hydrangeas. Fall is such a beautiful season. The blooms of fall flowers seem to be more intense than in other seasons. I enjoyed your poem and how you shared the meaning of each flower.


Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

Gypsy Rose Lee 4 years ago from Riga, Latvia Author

So glad you enjoyed my poem to autumn flowers Marlene. They are really lovely. My mom enjoyed them very much and in her life I always made sure she had many of them. Your chrysanthemums and hydrangeas must be a lovely sight. Fall is really colorful and beautiful.

What a wonderful hub Gypsy which I vote up and share.This one is so close to my heart and again I am reminded of how many kindred spirits there are right here on HubPages.

You are a great writer and here's to many more for us both to share on here.

I love your poetic description of each of the beautiful flowers, instead of an essay mentioning the scientific name of the flowers, etc. Nice way to put it. Great pictures too! :)
