Poem: Ode To Autumn

Shh!

Do you hear that?

The leaves whispering in our ear.

 

Shh!

Do you smell that?

Decaying apples bringing memories of warm cider.

 

Shh!

Do you see that?

The leaves turning many shades of brown, red, yellow, and orange.

 

Shh!

Do you feel that?

The coolness in the air.

 

Shh!

Do you taste that?

Memories of pumpkin flavors enticing our taste buds.

 

Shh!

Do you hear that?

Voices in the wind.

 

Shh!

Do you smell that?

Wood burning, feeling of warmth overtakes us.

 

Shh!

Do you see that?

Between the trees, fire reaching towards the heavens.

 

Shh!

Do you feel that?

The earth beneath our feet while we stroll to the fire.

 

Shh!

Do you taste that?

Gooey S’mores sticking to our lips.

 

Shh!

Life-changing

Life dying

Nourishing the Earth

For Autumn is upon us.
