Autumnal Confetti

Autumnal Confetti

A Poem by Gee
"

A seasons change.

"
A seasons end celebration,
Autumnal confetti abounds,
covering the damp and the frosty,
a warm quilt sewn over the ground.

Flowers they bow to the cooling,
slowly all colour is gone,
whilst birds take flight for the winter,
the air bereft of their song.

The warmth of the sun but a memory,
as it sits, low slung in the sky,
"farewell, I'll miss you this winter"
my heart it says with a sigh.

Cheers JCC. Most need polishing as quickly written. One day....
The musicality of this is marvellous! "the air now bereft of their song" simply divine! Not to cramp your style or anything, but my only critique is the use of pronouns directly after the nouns they're referring to. There are so many juicy words in the English language, why fill the necessary space with a relatively unnecessary pronoun? If it works for you, it's fine, I'm only saying to give you something to think about. Absolutely well done on this!

Aloha Gee, imagery flowing like your words. The rhyme is lovely very melodic. I love how you honour the season. An island style autumn is my favorite still warm but the landscape becomes moody. Beautiful. Izzy

Hi Izzy. Thanks for the review
Love the non-trite rhyming, and this clever line, " a warm quilt sewn over the ground."

Thanks for reviewing my poem "Lovely Sun."

My pleasure and thank you for the review
A quick one your poem might be, but.. what amazingly good meter - truly brilliant. And all the way - start to finish, your words describe both your world's Autumn and your strong feelings for sight of them .

You are to kind, thank you.
I feel the same way - I love the beauty in autumn but am sadden about summer's departure. Now I have to wait patiently for spring. I love all the new poems about autumn being posted - seems it's either someone's favorite season or one that brings (like for me) the sighhh - wonderfully written poem you have here with such an easy flow and rhyme to it :)

Thank you Carolynn
Couldn't agree with you more Gee. The seasons change not only on the outside, but change us too, gradually warning us that the holiday is over and it is time to get ready for the years end and prepare for our winter dance of many layers and many more grumbles. :)

Indeed, and I cant be doing with the cold. Cheers
Your rhyming flows so effortlessly, the poem lacks not an ounce of charm.
This my favourite season. Not too, not too cold, not too wet. Just right.
