~ Autumn's Jewel Box ~

Gently, gently, lift the cover
And gaze into the land
Autumn's jewelry is aglow
To caress your open hand

Feel its beauty gripping
Softly, let it fall
As the zephyrs of the autumn winds
Bring in the forest's call

Come absorb, grasp hold the value
Of the goodness floating by
Prepare your heart for winter
Look now into the sky

The mighty earth is fading
Once more it needs to sleep
The moments are soon passing
Now is the time to reap

Gather up the treasure
Draw life as God's receipt
Autumn twinkles on the very brink
Whispering all that is to keep


Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems © 2006

falling leaves
hide the path
so quietly
John Bailey

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel
the bone structure of the landscape
the loneliness of it—the dead feeling of winter.
Something waits beneath it—the whole story doesn't show.
Andrew Wyeth

Autumn is a season followed immediately
by looking forward to spring.

Doug Larson

It is only the farmer
who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring,
who reaps a harvest in Autumn
B. C. Forbes
