Misty mornings and frost tipped blades

white-topped grass slippery lanes

autumn chill running through the red filled veins


as cold air brushes the face

autumn mornings we have graced

shivers moments in autumns chill

wake us up it’s no frill


dark eery evenings add to the chill

Halloween beckons

free spirits roam

spooky goings on

as ghosts roam


guy Fawkes is coming

be aware too

bang flash sparkle

sky’s braced with colours

around you


nature runs and hibernates away

storing food to keep hunger at bay


trees rustle leaves depart

their journey floating

down in the park


autumn is here having its way

as plants die off and wilt away


birds migrate to warm climes too

far away from autumn chill


seas be come rough

no swimming today

summers has long passed away

  1. Ahh, the chills of autumn, the waning of summer’s passion mirror the passages of the seasons. Your poem has impressed deep nostalgia in my heart for the passing away of my favorite season.

  2. Evokes the true feeling of Autumn … nice one Keith

  3. Very descriptive, I am right there, on your autumn day. Keep up the great work!
