An Autumn Day

An Autumn Day

A Poem by Stanley R. Teater
"

Renewal

"


‘Twas an autumn day that drew me outside

To drink in nature’s heady concoction.

Leaves danced to the tune of a playful breeze,

And the sun shone down warm upon my back.

Billowy clouds scurried across blue sky.

Birds sang. Butterflies fluttered: weightless, free.

 

My step was light; my spirit soaring high.

Worries had I, but they were left behind

To molder and die in my yesterdays.

Tomorrow had a hopeful happy hint

Of better times and tender loving arms

To hold me tight and squeeze away my pain.

 

Ah, yes, I thought. On such a day as this

The world can begin again and leave us

To start anew, refresh ourselves and breathe

Untroubled air, sweet, and clear, and so kind

That our sins are left behind like old dust

To sweep away and toss aside. Forget.

I liked the positive energy shared in the poetry.
"Ah, yes, I thought. On such a day as this
The world can begin again and leave us
To start anew, refresh ourselves and breathe
Untroubled air, sweet, and clear, and so kind
That our sins are left behind like old dust
To sweep away and toss aside. Forget."
The above lines. Perfect thoughts we need to follow. Thank you Stanley for sharing the excellent poetry.

If only our sins could be washed away and left behind so easily. Nothing like a lovely fall day to get one thinking. Valentine
