Many the splendour of a cool autumn day, yet a sense of betrayal...death nature's way.

A chill embraces this autumnal day
Dense cloak of fog hangs heavy at dawn
The scent of decay, a dewdrop-soaked leaf
Looses its grasp on a half-naked limb

Feelings of sadness, a coldness within
Lost summer days, clouds of anger in sky
A blanket of frost in darkness clings
A sparkling demon shines crystaline

Once vibrant flora now sag as in pain
Lifeless reminders of winter's approach
Small creatures storing sustenance deep
A bear soon in slumber will hibernate

Lowly of spirit, I witness decline
The Maple Leaf shed as if by disease
On the window sill lays a fallen leaf
A victim of coldness, death nature's way

Don MacIver
Come on a journey with me...where eagles soar.

This is a very good read...I loved how you wrote of the sadness and coldness that come with the changing of the seasons...I sometimes get depressed when everything seems like it is dying...But .. ..Spring will come soon ...and bring with it LIFE....and Allergies...I just had to put that in......Great work, Don...Kacee
