Autumn swing

A Poem by black.butterfly


Autumn swing

On this swing we always glide,
who we are completely aside,
back and forth for a while.
Sometimes we frown & sometimes we smile.

The wind pushes us ahead
and the drifted leaves are faded-red.
We are greeted by the white sunlight
& sung to sleep by the blue lush at night.

The swing silently remains,
while we dream of worldly gains,
but we will still glide & never fly,
once we are awake with a morning sigh.

I found this poem to be a wonderful interpretation of life ways. Your metaphors were soft and idyllic but captures something more, something deeper. Great write.

I love how all your poems seem to flow so gently as I read them, I always read aloud, so every time I read one of yours I'm kinda' singing a bit to your words. Great poem

Very romantic... I like the harmony in it's rhythm!!! It's more like a morning-chant :)))) ... It made me smile to be frank :D !!!

I've been reading poems on autumn today - spectacular season, of course. It's amazing how every other mind portrays the verb of falling leaves in a unique way. Wow.

I liked it. The only part I didn't like is in the line "& sung to sleep by the blue lush at night," I don't think it needs "lush." It's fine without it. Just a thought.
