Fall is my favorite season. The trees are in their glory. And there are also lovely fall flowers. Below is a photo to show you that everything doesn’t die in the fall. The tree poem and photo following the flowers are my tribute to fall.
Yes! These are autumn flowers from The Shenandoah Valley.
The Flames of Fall
there’s a tree outside my window
flaming leaves it does adorn
every day its fire greets me
through the softly, sunlit morn
leafy-laden, tall and stately
in the wind i hear its sighs
brilliant branches span my vision
color bedazzles my sleepy eyes
all too soon the leaves forsake it
naked branches, stripped and bare
patiently i await the springtime
green returns again to wear
trees are truly awesome wonders
especially in the blazing fall
Kilmer was acutely accurate
trees are lovely, all in all!
