Poem About The Beauty Of Autumn

I was fortunate enough to live near the mountains and enjoy their beauty when the colors changed. I was grateful that I could take my terminally ill sister on one last ride through the magnificent colors, a preview to heaven.

Portrait Of Fall

Looking out my window
In October's golden light,
I see a beauty unsurpassed,
A truly lovely sight.

Leaves are saying soft good-byes
As they come floating down
To make a nature's carpet
Of yellow, red, and brown.

Mountain tops, now turned to white,
Forewarn of winter chills,
While trees, like golden rivers,
Wind their way up through the hills.

Throughout our world's creation
You will ever find it thus,
Kaleidoscopes of color,
In God's hand, the artist's brush.

I agree and I like this poem. When I was a young boy, growing up in the South East, Autumn was my favorite season. I remember the chill in the air, the smell of freshly harvested fields, and of course the Fall colors. I also liked Autumn because it signaled the coming of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The poem portrays the beauty of the fall, just as Keats famously wrote: "Thou hast thy music too!" Nature's pristine beauty is a treat to the human eye. The references to the golden light, fallen leaves, mountain tops and rivers form such a colourful imagery for the reader and stays along. Beautifully written!
