    autumn

    autumn is upon us
    i feel a whispered chill
    as the leaves turn to rust
    time seems to stand still


    when the autumnal winds blow
    the fragile world slowly dies
    and as the dead litter the ground
    upon natures murderous guise


    a hush falls within the air
    death like silence ensues
    the crypt of autumns nature
    as life and death infuse


    the shivering aura of dusk
    drapes across a barren land
    the frozen rays of the sun
    too intense to withstand


    as darkness falls upon the earth
    the sun surrenders to the night
    a shiver within the autumn air
    as the fragile world slowly dies

    I love this time of year and your poem captured the feel of falling leaves, frost and chilly nights. Kelly

    Your poem begins with a perfect meter, and the fusing of life and death is amazing, very pinpointed in "crypt of autumn", while feeling life as "fragile, the world" is a loving view....

    Truely got a chill off that last line Dan- wow- Im working on an autumn one myself- and I know there is just something only the select few in the human race of ours, can sense- when fall comes in.. its not coco and sweaters either.. it's- what you have written- and once again, I bow to your ridiculous brilliance! Not only have you brought complete darkly noticed depth from the first to last line- you have created a body that could give chills in the middle of summer's swelter- from the visual perception you tagged! Once again, I came, I read- I leave with a smile.. ps- the POB book is ready, and from the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU for your dedication to the cause, and the friendship- you are one hell of a guy!-Maddi

    thanks so much ginga

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
