Wild child Autumn

Wild child Autumn

A Poem by Frieda P

bid adieu to summer's fire


A twinkle in her eye,
   as autumn breezes whirl,
tumbling like popcorn nymphs twirling
    wild child frolics amidst colored skies,
              feels alive in falling rhymes
romps with playful butterflies
     zephyrs of golden ribbons lace the air
        crimson and tangerines hues,
crisp as a morning's dawning view
   cuddly sweater's warmth upon a hearth,
          dashed in a clash of a smile's sigh
bid a brisk adieu to sweet 
      summer's fiery summertide

"The uploader has not made this video available in your country" Now I am intrigued by what music you chose for this highly appropriate poem. Sunday we were 77 F and sunny, Monday it was 32 F and we had 4 inches of snow. Totally skipped that "autumn breeze" thing.
Well written FP.

I think my favorite season loved the tribute

You know if you would have written "Tumbling like popcorn nymphs twerking" it would have been a completely different poem. That's how much one word can change a piece.

Absolutely beautiful. It's not yet Autumn where I am, but through your words I could so clearly see the colors of the season. :)

OMG wow... The imagery really. You leave me speechless with each read. I keep saying no way could you top the last poem and you always do. You just get more amazing each time. Honestly I am a massive fan... Fandango!

If you want to know me, read my poetry, it's all in there. I am a mother of three sons (my finest moments) a sister, a survivor and a little bit crazy. I lost my beloved sister to suicide, so you'll.. more..
