Autumn Nights

From Anarchist. TransFeminist. Amazon. by Jennifer Amelia Rose (author's profile)


Autumn Nights

Autumn nights in October
are sometimes somber and sad,
or sometimes glad
for an ending of things.

The moon-light shimmers calmly
in the darkest skies of Night,
'til the morning star gleams bright
at the beginning of dawning days.

Mother Nature cries of rain
and exhales Her breath, the wind.
As autumn shows itself again
in the falling yellow maple leaves

The seasons keep turning
as one thinks of the loves lost,
She shows us the real cost.
Who hears or sees the signs?

Hello! I finished the transcription for your post. This was a beautiful poem, I enjoyed reading it! I loved the ABBC rhyme scheme. Each stanza showed a new side and felt emotion of the autumn season, which was really entrancing. Thanks for writing!
