Scenic Sunday #68

November

The stripped and shapely
Maple grieves
The ghosts of her
Departed leaves.

The ground is hard
As hard as stone.
The year is old
The birds are flown.

And yet the world,
In its distress,
Displays a certain
Loveliness.

- John Updike from "A Child's Calendar"

That's a perfect autumn scene. I really enjoy it! Wish I could come across something like that!

Lovely poem and Autumn scene.

Yes, nice poem.
But now write your own poem!
Just improvise:

The birds are gone
my mind will follow
at home my love
is raking leaves

My uncle knows
innocent kids
always die in wars
who is to blame

we go on
with our lifes
but sometimes
we die a bit
