Autumn--By Yvonne Sparkes--England

Autumn

Ah, Autumn shall I try to say,
How you adorn the path of woodland way?
Give times of misty mornings burnished gold,
Vermillion leaves that gloriously unfold.
This mélange of color floods my eyes
With remnants of an Argentinean sky.
My thoughts of harmony now abound,
To places Pumpkins can be found.
Unified hearts shall then delight,
With blessings at this wondrous sight.
For God who paints the leaf and scene,
Brings love to all, with hopeful dreams.

Born on Feb. 27, 1940 in Barkingside, Essex, England, Yvonne Sparkes,  immigrated to New York in April, 1948 with her parents.  She now resides in Chelmsford, Essex and has two sons.  She has a book published by Cyberwit called Captured Images.  A writer for many years, Yvonne has been published in Israel, Germany, France, Australia, America, and Britain.  She has read her poetry in public at Church and Knockout Competitions. Her hobbies are travel, the arts, reading, hiking, taking her Scottish Terrier for walks, and spending time with family and friends.

  5. I had so much fun, reading this aloud. I would love to elaborate on how awesome this poem is, but I have to get back to reading it again. I have this meter down to a science and I don't want to lose it.
