Autumn's Fire - A Poem

Autumn's Fire


As the harvest sun sets over painted trees,
for a short time summer's memory can return.
Fleeting moments before the darkness rules,
dusk's great forge sets the evening heavens to burn.

Tonight the fiery sky blazes out so strong,
Silhouetting brave flocks as away they fly.
A seasonal spectacle to take your breath away
when autumn's vivid flames colour land and sky.

Summer's fire was there for all to see and feel;
Bright flowers grew tall under her scorching gleam.
Early autumn grants summer's warmth a lofty echo
before it's he, alone, who reigns supreme.

    1. Thank you. We had another fabulous sunset last night all dark red and really rather ominous. First frost this morning so I suspect autumn is really taking charge now.
