Do You Remember Me

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.

 Update... I saw the surgeon last week and he said the Thyroid has to come out but he's raised my Thyroid Meds a lil higher to see if it will slow the Thyroid down some and relieve some of my symptons . He said it was burning itself out. I've not been this sick in many years but I know there's some in worse shapes. I'm sorry I haven't been around to visit ya'll but I will get around to it soon. Many thanks for the prayers and sweet words of encouragement. God Bless. ~ Susie


  1. Dearest Friend Susie....How I love to read your poems. Your heart and soul shine through every word and verse. I am glad to know the Dr. knows what is the problem and how to help you. I am keeping you in my prayers daily and in my heart always. I know this is a rough journey for you...and I know the Lord is right there with you...He carries you when the road is too tough to walk and holds your hand when he knows you can do more. Love you and I mean it! Susan Rix. <3 <3 <3

    1. Thank you sweet friend. Prayers are the key. God has surely carried me the last 9 mos. but he knows all things and his time is not ours. Love you too. xo

  2. Beautiful poem,,,I so love the autumn.
    Holding in my heart and prayers...I am sorry you have been so sick. It is admirable that you take the time out to write and bless us with your talent. Jesus will give you more grace to get through this...and what a good thing it is to know you are in good hands with your doctor and surgeon too.
    Blessings and love~ Lisa

  3. Susie, this is a beautiful poem! So very descriptive of the fall season.

    Thank you for the update. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and wonder how you're doing. Still praying for good health to return.

  4. Lovely poem, Susie. This is my favorite line: "as summer goes softly, shutting the door."

    Wishing you a return to good health soon.

  5. Susie, I hope upping your meds gives you relief. If they take your thyroid out you will be on meds ..I think it takes adjustments to get it all smoothed out too. My daughter lost her thyroid due to cancer. I hate that you do not feel well. I will keep you in my prayers. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  6. That is so pretty, Susie! I can almost feel Autumn trying to sneak in here, almost.
    Praying for you, my friend. This has gone on for long enough!

  7. I sure hope you are feeling better, Susie. I'm so sorry about the illness.
    I love your photo and poem. You've captured so beautifully this wonderful season with the lovely fall imagery. Blessings to you, Susie.

  8. Beautiful poem ! what a nice tribute to fall. Love it.
    Please take care of yourself. I hope that the new dose of your Thyroid meds work. Please don't worry about visiting us. I know that you care and you are always in our thoughts.
