Autumn Leaves



Red, yellow, orange and brown
Gently on the breeze, falling down,
Covering the soft grass under the trees
A blanket of curled-up autumn leaves.


Crunch, crunch, they make a sound
Under my feet, walking around,
We'll come back, they seem to say
Tender and green, on a spring day.


Until then, here shall we lie
The heat of summer long gone by,
Waiting for the frost and snow
As winter casts a cold shadow.

On the grass, under the trees                     
A blanket of dry autumn leaves.

  1. ha - a brilliant description of autumn leaves - I love the playfulness in the poem. If it was not for the rain outside I would be tempted to go the park and play!

    1. It has been rather wet lately. Must say I used a bit of poetic license here :-)
