"Autumn Occurs To Me"

How can you but chose the explosion of color

at the beginning of the end of summer?

Nothing could be duller that a season with no change,

and as the Good God does arrange,

all aglow and seeming without reason,

is this verge we are on of the merging of

brown and red and gold, yellow from green,

mellowing from the unseen cold.

Mountains are dressed in bursts of shimmering trees,

all ablaze in their best, meant for you,

meant to please - which they do - as they glimmer.

I have come to believe that too much Autumn

might put one in a craze - for you cannot leave -

Who, from the sight, would turn from it?

In a daze, you listen to silent thunder,

you stand in wonder as you gaze -

This is what God, for us, did commit.

Stand and offer your highest praise!

Terrific entry! Trying to stop by in-between neighbor using my computer. Thanks for prayers and support. Can't say it enough. Rough days ahead but God's got me covered, and my friends too.

I would love to live in a state where you see the seasons change.  I live in California and it just stays the same, pretty much all year round.  Some of the trees may lose their leaves, but that's about it.  We don't get to see the beautiful autumn colors that other states do.  You get to feel that chill in the air as autumn approaches... we, here where I live, get to feel relief from the heat.  The temps will drop from 100 to 80.  Sounds wonderful doesn't it?  :/

Hugs

I like nature poems.  You have a lovely sense of rhythm and use of internal rhyme such as "is this verge we are on the merging of."  --Sheria
