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.

    Autumn Personification Poem

    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. 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.

    Sun with his artistic touch,

    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.

    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;

    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.
