"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

than 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.

I stand to offer highest praise.

Autumn in all its splendour and its brilliant colours is to me like God's masterpiece, travelling from Massachussetts and up north in Ontario to my trailer last week, I some some of God's masterpiece and it always amazes me that if we just look around us, we can enjoy nature and life's beauty so freely.  Some, at times are rushing too quickly through life to see this, I hope they stop sometime and open their eyes to God's masterpiece.  A beautiful poem as always Luddie.

Lovely thoughts in verse Luddie.  'you stand in wonder as you gaze --' brought me to a special spot in the White Mountains that we visit less often than we would like, but always enjoy in the fall.

A friend just sent me three awesome autumn pics last night, and then here today I read this beautiful ode.  Not as much brillance here among the pines, but the nip that comes to the air revitalizes me.  -  Barbara

And here, all along, since I was a kid, I thought that "Jack Frost" painted all the leaves those beautiful colors!!! I always questioned this, because I was taught that God was the Creator of all things - but each fall would come and, lo! and behold, Jack Frost would, once again, paint our world in awesome colors - each fall, it would seem better and more beautiful than the last.  And all this time, it was really God's Creativity making all these miracles happen in the most beautiful season of the year.  Can you tall I absolutely LOVE fall??
Thank you, God (and Jack Frost, too)!!  Oh!  One more thing - isn't it fun to be a kid??
