I felt the trees were crying
Their fallen life, just lying
A pile windswept and dying
The greatest artist could never paint
The colours that they had wept
Or seen the life that they had lived
These silent sleeping giants.

greatly done john, short but sweet, autumn is the slow death of spring and summer is still here, for now, but you can tell at night that winter is round the corner, and gonna breathe down our neck

Exquisite writing John....the tone, mood, subtle wording just captured the beauty of Autumn. Lovely.

The trees they do their telling
of a summer by and gone;
and as seasons do, so shall I,
 life constantly moving on.

Winter too, has her story to tell.
So let her speak, we must!
Soon Spring will call and rise again,
from amber, crimson and rust.

This was beautiful John, and I hope you don't mind me putting in my two cents. The is just something about the trees in Fall that is like a beacon to everything else. A signal to prepare, and I love it. Your thoughts were well put together here and much enjoyed this fine Fall morning.

Melancoly, but nice poetry. I love Autumn myself knowing

that the sap goes down to rest for next spring and this is just

2007's curtain call. :o)


Be well friend,

Ahh, the melancholy side of the season. True to word too, I feel this same sad parting in autumn.


May I suggest you consider, Their fallen life, just lying for line 2. It fits with the activity of leaves and has a smoother flow. Agree?


The colours that they had wept, I love this line, WOW! This poem really appealed to me because it is more in keeping with my own opinion with fall. I know of the majesty of the season too but even in its splendor, I feel the decline happening all around me. 


Although this poem is brief it says so very much. Fine work John.
