Calling in the Fall

Updated on September 27, 2017


The Fall of the year is here, the time we hold so dear

When leaves all turn to such a colour-filled crispness

Frost displays its frozen greeting to all so far and near

Calling crows in the distant field herald in the coolness


James Whitcomb, is that you calling in the Fall, I hear




The rays of a resplendent sun honeycomb woodlands

Grey squirrel and brown deer all do scamper to and fro

As flocks of wild geese are calling in their native bands

Loud knocking of a red-headed woodpecker does echo


James Whitcomb, is that you I hear, calling in the Fall


A frisky wind blows in to sway the trees in all yellows and reds

The forest's carpet fills up with pine straw by a leaf-strewn dale

Small tracks are left, signs of wild creatures, where each treads

As the setting sun bids adieu, this captured scene it does unveil.


James Whitcomb, is that you calling in the Fall once again



On the farm, the red rooster calls, a sentinel of the dawn

Birds all sing in the trees, as chickens cluck to sing along

Smoke escapes the old chimney then, to warm a chilly day

Is now the time that Autumn to come, to put on its display.


James Whitcomb, we all have been inspired

      You illustrate that "colour-filled crispness" so well and the sounds come through also. Good work!

      Great way to capture the spirt of the art into your poetic lines. It's almost like you were narrating a documentary about his life.
