The Autumn Leaves

Updated on June 6, 2014

The trees beneath the falling sky,

We stare upon their bare delight,

As the wind moves through the leaves,

Autumn comes to us tonight.

Now the warmer days have passed,

Leaving with them much debris,

Now the earth is coated light,

From the window to the tree.

Soon the trees will darken much,

The sky above them close to touch,

The whitest snow will coat the leaves,

Our autumn dreams will cease.

Hope you enjoyed :)

      Perfect for this time of year! I love the cooler temps (this is Texas so I'm talking about a drop from 100+ degrees F. down to around 70 for the daytime high), the colorful leaves, and a blustery day when the wind whips the leaves around as they fall.

      I lived in the Boston area for a while and was born and grew up in Wisconsin. Both places usually have way more colorful leaves than Texas. The leaves here get bright colored in the fall after a severe drought, so I never wish for those bright colors down here. Our more subdued colors are pretty too.

      I do remember not only the gorgeous bright colors up north, but one morning in Boston I got up and looked outside and many of the trees were bare. Every single leaf from those bare trees had fallen overnight, all at one time in one big whoosh, and were piled at the base of the trees. No wind had blown them.

      I actually witnessed this happening one time, and it was as if one of the leaves had given the word and all at once every leaf fell at once, straight down to the ground in a huge pile.

      Going to share this poem with my followers.
