AUTUMN’S SONG

A gale  blew past us

As we took a walk through the botanical garden

Nestling a love song on October’s leaves

 

Flying golden leaves, free falling

Wilting willow branches’ calling

Like a rising phoenix, more or less

 

Screaming school kids, Haunted playgrounds

Apple bobbing and Candy apples

Nesting a love song on October’s leaves

 

See the the crisp browning of dragon’s breath

Shadowing the mixed scent of pumpkin and poetry

Like a rising phoenix, more or less

 

The simmering embers make a comeback

Diluting Summer’s exotic air

Nestling a love song on October’s leaves

 

A cup of tea like communion wine on every lip

Merrymaking cradles on every hip

Like a rising phoenix, more or less

 

A picturesque view we’ve come to adore

lures us to a scintillating shore at four

Nestling a love song on October’s leaves

 

Like a Phoenix wing, more or less

We know neither a steady beginning or a quick trip

If venom drips off a ghoulish organ,

Let’s join to sing October’s songs forever more
