She stole the light then painted white all summer's fading green..

She stole the light then painted white all summer's fading green..

A Poem by Gee
"

Autumn..More simple stuff !!

"
She chased away the summer sun
bringing skies of leaden grey,
drew night time curtains early eve
stole light from every day.

And with a chill breath stirred the air
loosed leaves from tired limbs,
replaced the chorus of the dawn
with crisp and frosted hymns.

This rousing those intent on sleep
to gather up and store,
fallen fruit to see them through
behind hibernations door.

Then once content her work well done
she silently did go,
inviting winter take her place
to blanket all in virgin snow.

This is a poem on winter that will stay with me. The second verse was simply breathtaking and such a beautiful tribute to an otherwise chilling and stark season. A great message and elegant word choice make this a very special write. My compliments on such superb craftsmanship, dear Gee.

What a brilliantly created view of Autumn.. Fall.. What an eye-catching and appropriate title too.

There was a time when i'd open your page, fully expecting to be amused and also amazed at the way you wrote that day's poem. Now, i step into your world and find finely craft, smoothly laid words that echo wh at i think are your emotions, Gee. Comes a time when the world calls us to look and see, both eyes wide open. And how you see that season's fading moody reminders.

I meant it, your poem's beautiful. (Forgive my typos however)
a lovely classic poem. i enjoyed reading your cold & wintery descriptions, though i'm glad we don't experience snow where i live.

when visiting my sister winter holidaying in aspen one year, i was dismayed how long it took to rug up just so you could go outside without freezing up. i like snow in postcards but not for real.

Can't stand the cold either Carola, give me sunshine anyway :)
Thank you
I lost something once; it took me an almost unbelievably absurd amount of time and resources to make it right again. It reminded me of winter without all the f*****g weather. Winter is more than weather.

It's kinda fun to read your PMS (walking on eggshells) poem & then this poem, right afterwards! It goes to show that your perspective is well-balanced. What woman would want to be described as in the other poem. And what woman would NOT want to be described as in this one? Very lyrical & heartfelt writing (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Wonderful poem for the season of Fall. The cold day arrived in Michigan. I do like the pace of the Fall. Seem slower and easier. Amazing use of description my dear friend. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Well timed Gee. First snowfall this fine, brisk morn. Once i got over mumbling under my breath and stomping my feet, i could enjoy the picture postcard scene... Before i remembered it will be Monday soon and i will be tramping through it all day, blah!
I like how you set this one up, with not only the scene, but nature winding up in preperation of those lucky enough to hibernate. Lucky sods 😀
