Fall Poems

Poems about Autumn

Every season has its special beauty and autumn is no exception. Watching the trees turn from a uniform green to all varieties of gold, yellow and red is a spectacular experience. One can almost be blinded by the fiery brilliance. How can it be that all this beauty is sign of death and decay? With all this beauty there is a certain sadness in knowing that the changing colors foreshadow the arrival of a long cold winter.

  1. Sing To Me, Autumn


    Sing to me, Autumn, with the rustle of your leaves.
    Breathe on me your spicy scents that flow within your breeze.

    Dance with me, Autumn, your waltz that bends the boughs of trees.

  3. My November Guest

    My Sorrow, when she's here with me,
    Thinks these dark days of autumn rain
    Are beautiful as days can be;
    She loves the bare, the withered tree;

  5. It's September

    It's September, and the orchards are afire with red and gold,
    And the nights with dew are heavy, and the morning's sharp with cold;
    Now the garden's at its gayest with the salvia blazing red
    And the good old-fashioned asters laughing at us from their bed;

    Sun with his artistic touch,
    streaks skies of blue with rosy blush,
    trimming Oak and Maple too,
    crimson reds with yellow hue.

  8. At Last You've Come Again!

    There's an early morning stillness,
    A pure, pastoral peace.
    A silence so consuming
    It sedates and comforts me.

  10. Autumn Leaves

    Golden, crisp leaves falling softly from almost bare trees,
    Lifting and falling in a hushed gentle breeze.
    Slowly dropping to the soft cushioned ground,
    Whispering and rustling a soothing sound.

    I look outside my window and see the leaves
    Changing color, one by one trickling to the ground.
    Fall. It's in my grasp. My favorite season, the one I long for.
    I take a deep breath. The crisp, cool, clean air tickles my nose.

    There's a crispness in the air that greets the morning sun,
    a feeling of anticipation, a new day has begun.
    Harvest days are ending, winter is drawing near,
    yet in between is surely the most special time of year.

  14. To Autumn

    Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,  
    Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
    Conspiring with him how to load and bless  
    With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;

    I imagined, though ever so brief, that I was a leaf;
    And the wind blew me off my tree.
    I was excited - even delighted,
    Because of the wonderful sights I would see.

    Autumn leaves dance gaily around,
    they swirl in a haze towards the ground.
    Auburns, golds, russets, too,
    offering different shapes, differing hues.

    A flash of lightning streaks across the sky.
    We huddle close beneath the trembling eaves
    As thunder roars a nightmare lullaby
    And strips the trees outside of summer leaves.
