Tales From The Autumn Breeze.

Tales From The Autumn Breeze. short poem

Uploaded by Marie


The autumn breeze blows through the trees
whispering secrets known to few
from all of his travels in summer
under skies of azure blue

He tells of flowers smiling
when watered by the rain
and of butterflies kissing them
again and again and again

He rambles on telling of the sea
how it runs to kiss its lover the shore
Kissing it, they shyly running away
and coming back for more

He tells of children playing
building sand castles with bucket and space
and eating all of the sandwiches
which their loving Mammy made

The trees listen intently
and bend to acknowledge each word
as he huffs and puffs and blows
with breath as sharp as a sword

Soon the wind begins to tire
The trees are glad of the rest
and notice their clothes are falling away
Soon they will be stripped down to their vest!

Autumn is one of the four seasons of all Here, the leaves of the trees do fall. Night spreads it’s darkness prematurely And cold ascends with it cavalierly. Nothing’s different in the autumn of life Where the wrinkled cheeks and
