The Sound of Autumn’s Fall

As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.” (Genesis 8:22)

I watch autumn leaves gently float down
Their colorful leaves layer the ground
The wind swirls them up as they spin around
Falling again as they touch the ground
I love to hear that lovely sound
The sound of autumn’s fall

The wind moves the trees in a gentle sway
Revealing fall colors this fine autumn day
A mural of colors which seem to convey
A splendor of colors that harkens my way
Colors so brilliant that cry out today
The sound of autumn’s fall

Autumn has come and the leaves now abound
The kids laugh and play as they toss them around
Jumping on leaves they’ve shaped in a mound
A cushion of leaves between them and the ground
We all love to hear that wonderful sound
The sound of autumn’s fall

I made a huge mound of leaves this morning...no kids to jump in them anymore, but the dogs had fun running through them. We have had a perfect fall...warm, dry, sunny. I wish we could move right into spring! Enjoying your poetry as always.

Hi MTJ. Been awhile :)

This piece made me smile at "leaves they've shaped in a mound". I can picture that 'wonderful sound'...

Nice work :)
