Autumn Left Us…

The crescent moon shows his twinkle
As the trees shiver in moonlight
Ground below dry hear the crinkle
Quiet valley endures her plight

Days ago, the foliage was bright
As golden leaves trimmed in deep red
Brings to one a beautiful site
Not thinking the leaves are now dead

Autumn left us alone and bare
With promise of new birth again
After springs flowers bloom with flair
Fields will flourish with their new grain

Each season has its own rebirth
Creatures wake to a brand new dawn
Bumblebee’s work colors the earth
Welcomes birth of a new born fawn

I thought I left a comment on this poem. My computer must have erased it. At any rate I especially loved your rhyming poem as it is my favorite form, but golly trying to stick to eight syllables for each line I would think would really be an added challenge. I am reminded how some women think they are just wonderful, dressed in their fancy attire with loads of make up and the like and don't even realize they are asleep when it comes to the things that are really important like a loving, kind heart. Oh I pray I never judge on appearances however, because one never knows another's true heart unless it is revealed. Funny that an autumn poem could make me think deeper. I too want to congratulate you on passing your 33,000 mark.
Love, Charlene

Thank you Charlene for the endepth comment - I appreciate your support and thoughts. Yes, I agree with you - with the ladies here where I live, I wish they would close their mouths and appreciate the beauty around them. They haven't a clue. Blessings...rg
