Poem 116:

Autumn Crest

Autumn’s Crest


Raindrops falling from the sky
count moments of time gone by
sometimes by gentle rush
or perhaps a torrid flush
wash away the day’s tears,
and many youthful fears

In autumns breath
raindrops drifting from the sky
glide upon a golden leaf
touch the ground, there to lie

In winters chest
rain hides in her cocoon
to emerge at a later date
as the very first snowflake

In the spring and summer cast
the ground renews her yearly quest
snowflakes fade from the eye
like leaves floating across the sky

Now in dreams they rest
gentle flakes in the sky

Change awaits in autumn’s breath
for the snowflake in the sky
her time is short, quickly spent
in this, the firmament

Await a summer fair, an autumn crest
to emerge again in winter’s chest
in eternal storm, hard and cold
lace the field, oh, the frosty morn

The days gone by, gentle flakes in my eye
reminds us of memories rambling by
these raindrops dripping from the sky
are but the canvas of the eye
