Elusive Muse

by Kate Demeree

In russets gown
Wearing golden shoes
With ruby crown
Is my darling muse

The scarlet wings
That fluttered by
Brought delightful things
To the autumn sky

Oh I the voyeur
Will ever be
Her secret lover
Captured willingly

Her dance of vales
Will be over soon
Novembers gales
Shall still October's moon

Yet I shall remember
Her garb and crown
She will dance in fires ember
As snow falls down

Waiting there
In memories eye
Until she dare
To reclaim the sky

How I



Elusive Muse

it seems colour and season have served as the glorious muse this time. We just worked on use of colours in our poetry class. You did a beautiful job here. Lovely.

Let me fall into autumn with words like these... words that linger with October's tease. Caress me with the colors of the fallen leaves, and your words whisper as the wind through the trees.... :)
