Autumn's Glory

Autumn whispers, do you remember me
with all my splendor and glory
Skies so clear vivid and blue
mornings crisp with sparkling dew

When summer fields are tan and lean
it is autumn that appears upon the scene
In its fancy suit and season attire
spreading farther and more higher

Splashing hills with red and gold
a lovely picture so bright and bold
Tall maple trees along the lane
wear rainbow halos in autumn's domain

The mighty oaks stand proud and tall
when autumn's foliage turns to fall
Even the ivy climbing each tree
turns a crimson red generously

The golden rod in the meadows bright
a canvas of yellow, a glorious sight
Orange pumpkins lay in the field
a splash of orange seals the deal

A sunset's flame of crimson red
wonders never cease, its beauty spread
Leaves us breathless wanting more
as summer goes softly, shutting the door

Every head bows in praise and prayer
amidst autumn's glory everywhere
No other journey is so grand
as when autumn takes us by the hand.

My favorite season of all. I can feel it in the air and see it more each day.
 Hope ya'll had a nice Labor Day!!


  1. Very, very pretty poem, Susie. I see the change of seasons around the hay fields; late season weeds are blooming and the sun is getting so lazy in the mornings!

    1. Thanks Charlotte. I bet you can see them out your way. It's turning some here too. xo

  2. Susie, This poem was so sweet, I read it out loud to myself.:):) I love autumn too. But it can give me the blues. I think it's because I know winter's on it's heels. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

    1. Awe, thank you so much Susie. A lot of people feel that way too. I dread winter but I love Fall. Blessings to you as well.

  3. Such beautiful words Susie. I love autumn too.

  4. I miss the fall colors so much --- we just don't have that beauty like northerners do. Your poem was so vivid and brought back childhood memories of pressing vividly colored maple leaves. Beautifully done, Susie!

    1. Thank you Cora. Glad It brought back memories for you. So happy to see you on here. I've missed you.

  5. Susie,
    Isn't Fall the most glorious season? I look forward to orange pumpkins, leaves falling, and cooler days. Your poem has made me long for Autumn.

    Happy September!
