Autumn Eases In

This past Tuesday’s Short Form Poetry Workshop was devoted to a special genre of weather orientated poetry.  The first of two that I wrote that night is Autumn Eases In.  I think I wrote it as much in avoidance of the horrible storms the US is currently encountering as I did in preference for the topics I chose.

La Digue du Braek - Rusty Lighthouse

Autumn Eases In
by Michael Romani

With a sneeze and a slight wheeze
Caught in a cool Autumn breeze
The branches of the trees
Change their colors as they please

The full moon is getting a nightful
And the chills can be so frightful
But with the rat-a -tat-tat
of droplets falling where they're at

The season has begun to change
Into a mood that strikes so strange
While lovers before a chimney fire
Whisper words of love and desire

The times are a changing their blanket
Of leaves on the ground, as we thank it
Autumn closes in to touch again and again
And chills us into comfort like an old friend
