Endless Autumn

I definitely have Fall Fever, taking pictures of the trees and flowers where I live, walk, and go for R & R (Flat Rock Park nearby with a river for Alan to float his model boat.)  So here’s a brief rhyme with photos to match.  NOTE: One of the photos is of a fall flower, as intense in color as the autumn leaves, so I have included it as the first photo:

 

 

Sitting by the river, watching the leaves turn bold

I wish for endless Autumn, ’til trees shiver in the cold.

If I had my druthers, I’d want a forever Fall:

colorful leaves all year long. Oh! how it would enthrall!

 

 

The jewel-toned leaves create a spark, that warms me through my days.

I’d keep that spark all year long. Let me count the ways:

Colors bright
Autumn light
Chilly night
Heavenly–quite!

In love with Fall
I plan to stay
Enduring the Summer
’cause Autumn’s on its way!

 

P.S. I posted this quote before, but it seems perfect for this poem:

.…if I were a bird

I would fly about the earth

seeking the successive autumns
