AUTUMN FESTIVAL


These friendly hills are now attired
To dance to tunes by winds inspired
Each golden tree will swing and sway
With oakbrush dressed another way
Confetti leaves will fill the air
Ripe apples will be royal fare
The harvest moon will shed its light
So dancing can go on all night.

But when the festival is through
The friendly hills find rest is due
And so in ermine robes they keep
A rendevous with healing sleep.

  1. This whole beautiful post and photo just "taste out LOUD" of Colorado...is that correct?

    Two of my AA friends are leaving Powderhorn TODAY, and heading for the beaches of Naples, FL.

    Do "not be fretted nor vexed", they'll be back in April or May!

    PEACE!

  2. Hi Margie,
    I absolutely love this poem. This poem and the picture remind me of how much I miss Colorado.
    This describes Colorado at it's finest. When I want to take a taste of Colorado I will come here and visit. Thanks so much sharing.
    Take care, my friend.

    Oh, so glad to know you loved my poem and that it added another dimension to autumn for you ... not a sad time ...
    Me, I do get somewhat sad when the trees are all bare but now it's a time of great beauty and I celebrate the beauty of autumn.

    I appreciate your visit and kind words, Devika.

  19. Oh gosh, look who is here .... Keshi, I was just thinking about you as I was replying to all my commenters here and there you were when I was just about done.

    How happy I am to see you here as I missed not hearing from you.

    So, you are still on your mini break ... well, I hope you are having the most fantastic time!

    Spring there and Autumn here.
    Cold there now, huh?
    And snow close by.... BRRRRRR!
    I know before too long we will have snow and I am just not ready for it.
    It was gorgeous here today, though.
    I was outside a lot with Mason (the sweet little guy that liked the earrings) and his sister Mallory.
    We had such fun together!

    Happy that my comments made you happy hun.
    Always want you to be nothing but happy.
    We all should be right, life is just too short not to be.

    Shall wait to hear from you.

    Take good care, Keshi.
    Have a ball!

    MWAH....

  21. This is really beautiful. The rhythm is spritely and energetic, like early fall, and like a fall dance, but then winds down effectively for the closing lines. Well done, Margie!

  22. It sings nature's beauty, I love it.

  23. Just beautiful, Margie. I can feel the fall in every line.
    I heard your words, from the poem you sent to me, in my mind today as I watched the ocean - thank you for caring and for your words of encouragement. :-) They make each day a little brighter.
    Hope all is well with you.
