Autumn has Fallen

by Thomas K. Hunt

The sky traverse
With gray and soft white light
Lay quilted as far as the eye
The chill slow dances with the wind
Embraced so close as if were one
The brightly colored leafs
Play tag and chase each other
In the cool breeze
Before landing for their final rest
Waiting to be entombed
By a pall of crystal white

Autumn has fallen
Overtaking the summer
That now fades to memory
Of blues and bright yellows
Of warmth and hurried motion
Of hot bodies cooled
By the clean river springs

Autumn has fallen
Stomping and pushing down the degrees
With each passing day
Stealing the long lighted days
Now cut short by early dusk
And dampened dawns
The moon at its fullest
Shines brilliant against the nights darkened sky

Autumn has fallen
Another summer has said goodbye
