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.

  4. Autumn's Majesty

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

  8. Autumn Leaves

    Letting Go Of The Old

    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.

    Indian Summer Poem

    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.
    They call it Indian Summer, and it seems to fit the bill, for it's as if the Lord took a feathered brush and painted all the hills.

    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.
