Autumn Fantasy

by Kristina Woodhill

If leaves could put off
The landing of the fall
They'd form a ā€œVā€
Just like a duck
And fly away to see
The other side
How wide the wide,
World without end,
Amen, amen,
Put away your rake, my dear,
Amen

Adds a whole new meaning to a "bird's eye view," Kris. Another poem about my favourite time of year. Thanks for that and also for your comment on my recent poem.

Oh lady, I love the fall and the raking of the leaves. We used to burn them in piles at the edge of our gravel road when I was a kid, my first childhood. Now of course its not acceptable in so many places. Enjoyed the write lady.

soulful and full of autumn goodness which made me smile on the inside (and out). Heartwarming images and the last 5 lines form a beautiful cliffhanger of a crescendo, anticipating the sensory take-off.
