The Autumn Song

Autumn comes with magical colors

Everywhere we look

Trees of red, orange, yellow and brown

Crunching leaves beneath our feet


Let’s go dance with the autumn breeze

Chase the falling leaves

Let’s cheer for the crispy air

And wave as birds take wing


Orange pumpkins by the roadside

Soon will wear their Halloween smiles

Piles of colored leaves

Making fun for laughing children


Let’s go dance with the autumn breeze

Chase the falling leaves

Let’s cheer for the crispy air

And wave as birds take wing


Clouds like big sailing ships

Blown across the sky

Still blue sunny skies to delight

Before the rains of autumn fall


Let’s go dance with the autumn breeze

Chase the falling leaves

Let’s cheer for the crispy air

And wave as birds take wing


So much to please the eye

Still a lot of green

I know in the twinkle of an eye

Nature’s paintbrush will change it


Let’s go dance with the autumn breeze

Chase the falling leaves

Let’s cheer for the crispy air

And wave as birds take wing


Then all around colors will appear

Making autumn so real

Apples fill the market place

Their aroma filling the air


Let’s go dance with the autumn breeze

Chase the falling leaves

Let’s cheer for the crispy air

And wave as birds take wing


So many things that autumn brings

Like squirrels with chubby cheeks

Full of nuts and acorns

Ducks on golden autumn ponds


Let’s go dance with the autumn breeze

Chase the falling leaves

Let’s cheer for the crispy air

And wave as birds take wing


The pleasure of autumn flowers

Sharing their beauty

Filling our hearts with joy

Before the winter sets in


Let’s go dance with the autumn breeze

Chase the falling leaves

Let’s cheer for the crispy air

And wave as birds take wing

Lovely poem with the images of autumn resonating in my mind's eye. I especially love your refrain! It could be put to song. I plan to be singing it today! Thank you again to a poet who cherishes Nature and expresses it with such appreciation!

Hi Gypsy... I loved this writing... there is something about fall that signifies the change we are all expecting. I am in a western coastal Province for the next several day and the smell of the cedar tress is amazing. The chill in the air is a reminder it s time to settle in and welcome the change.

Hugs from British Columbia

So glad you enjoyed this and the pics Dream On. That little squirrel reminded me of the one years ago in a park in Brooklyn that me and my mom would feed. He was just as greedy and started taking unshelled peanuts from my hand and trying to stuff two in his mouth at once then up the tree. It was hilarious.

What a lovely tribute to my favorite season. I love the nip in the air, colorful leaves and the smell from the chimneys. By now, all the leaves are gone from the trees here in Sweden and only the bare branches can be seen. I just love to walk and listen to the sound of the fallen leaves under my feet. I loved this poem and the colorful images. Thank you!

Glad you enjoyed this Sannel. Right now all of our colorful leaves are under a blanket of white snow.

Glad you enjoyed this Dream On. That little fellow in the first pic looks like the squirrel that is always hanging around our garden. Right now we have white everywhere and a little snow falls every day.

When I saw that cute little face looking out from one of your featured hubs, I had to see what went with it! I love squirrels and miss not being able to feed them or watch their antics anymore. Your photos of the squirrel, the autumn leaves, and the apples are super.

Your poem is fantastic. It really paints a vivid picture of all the wonderful characteristics of autumn in one's mind. It brings back memories of shuffling through the fallen leaves and the crispness in the air, etc.

Voted up, BAI, and will share!
