~ Autumn's Last Kiss ~

Comes the final days of autumn
Reach and take a lasting draw,
Of the fragrances, the wonder ever fading
The loveliness of fall.

Come wander down a leafy lane with me
And kick the rustle high,
Dance with abandon, twirl with pretty leaves
And breathe one passing sigh.

Gaze long upon the mountain tops
The hues of rusty red,
Dwell upon the memory, bask in it today
Take that long deep breath.

Stretch high and pluck an apple
Enjoy that autumn crisp,
Hold a golden blossom, turn it in your hand
Then press it to your lips.

Kiss the last lone butterfly
Wave farewell to honking geese,
Bid goodbye, then dream of autumn's glow
And all it's glory you will miss.

As the flowers, with one last fleeting smile,
Tuck in their pretty little heads,
To rest beneath the falling leaves
God's cover on their beds.

Soft whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2008

The last warmth of the sun.
Chilly mornings and glorious
warm afternoons.
The Harvest Moon.
The Hunter's Moon. The
Rainy Season. The touch of frost
on grass and window
pane. The last smell of
burning leaves.
~Keith C. Heidorn~

"Live in each season as it passes:
breathe the air,
drink the drink,
taste the fruit."
-Henry David Thoreau~

Falling leaves-
simply God's way of saying sunshine
it's time to wave
goodbye, we'll see you very soon
