Oh Autumn!

Oh Autumn!

A Poem by SyberRose

I hear the rhythm of the leaves

tantalizing in the breeze,

and it won’t be very long

as autumn dances

 to her striptease song~

 

Oh autumn, please serenade me!


Rustle your skirt of gold and red ember

as you say good bye to September__

Cha Cha your slender limbs

as you self- indulge your whims~


Oh autumn, please dance for me!

 

While you are posing bare

with just a few leaves in your hair
and essence of ginger perfume,
within the smoke and ashes

except for your branches
is the memory

 of yesterday's

 bloom~

I like the way you have personified Autumns as a female, so stylish and full of character. I wonder if she actually clears up after herself? I doubt it. Your structure is great as well.

Thank you...i'm glad you enjoyed Sheema...thanks for peeking in today...:)
Autumn, yes,.. in Virginia....the blue ridge....I have some lovely photos that I took there at this time of year. So many colours, and just as you say here in your poem. Somehow, by the next Spring, the trees remember and all of that splendour begins again.
Lovely poem, Rose, it made me think of Lynchburg and my time there all those years ago.

Autumn's dance is indeed enchanting with all her splendid colours, even though she does end up virtually bare!

An imaginative welcome to Autumn's delights and vibrancy !

Rose, symbols of autumn, doing her dance, striptease song, ginger perfume.... All are lovely!!

I like your guitar music and the wavering reflection in the water on your portfolio.

Yes it's beautiful...Its my favorite time of year...thank you for taking time to read Will....Rose:)
This was fun, I love the liveliness you gave to this beautiful season! the rhyming was smooth and really added to the overall image of leaves falling gracefully, in a sort of dance.

Beautiful, thank you for sharing!
