Wine and Yellow

Wine and Yellow

A Poem by Dave Brown

As I watch fall leaves change

From green to wine and yellow

It reminds me of a poet’s voice

Could it be a Keats or Longfellow

Or an artist’s painting on a wall

Bright with colors of the fall

That takes my head and leads my heart

Through a fantasy of colors

And transfixed I gladly follow               

                                     

There is that songstress in autumn’s air

Singing last of summer’s days

Who creates autumn’s melody

With tunes that please and praise

As summer’s call now fades away

Like feathers floating heavenly

Above a ground now changing yellow

And stalks with drooping heads

As clouds invade a cooling sky

Comes the oranges, golds and reds

Indeed a colourful and jolly rhyming trot through autumnal hues as they sweep in to tell of winter due.

We still have much that is green to look at in my neck of the woods, but that will start to change rapidly from now on. This is a really beautiful fall poem Dave. It flows and rhymes well, classical in style. I enjoyed it very much along with the thought of all that splendid colour that will be with us before long. Very nicely composed.
