Poetry Sunday-Autumn’s Kiss

Autumn’s Kiss

 

A chillin’ kiss on frosty morn,

On every blade and flower adorns.

 

As summer fades and autumn is born

The icy dew does bid us warned.

 

 

 

For soon the nights will be long and cold

As winter slips in to take its hold.

 

So cherish for now each warm sunny day,

As they skip on the breeze and fade away.

I wrote this poem last October 3rd, 2013 on my garden blog, Gardens Eye View, in anticipation of the coming frost.   Frost came suddenly in late October that year, and the pictures here show the killing frost in the garden readying the landscape for winter’s chill and frozen time.

Special Note:  This year we waited until the middle of November for our killing frost which came with snow.

  1. Shimmery leaves and flowers are so pretty when kissed by Jack Frost.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Donna.

  2. Your icy frost-covered leaves make me shiver, they are beautiful but so chilling. They make me glad I am warm inside, but sad for the birds and animals that must endure all the cold this winter.

    1. I also worry about the critters in winter Hannah, but they seem to be so strong that they give me courage…the frosty pictures of that first one are so beautiful…and then it is gone.

  3. I love the rhymes, Donna. Great frosty pictures, too. We had snow on Thanksgiving but it melted quickly. How nice of you to share a photo each Sunday ~ such a lovely format to your Sunday posts 🙂

  4. It goes right to my heart… (hope I’ll say it right!!) “As summer fades and autumn is born

    The icy dew does bid us warned.

    For soon the nights will be long and cold

    As winter slips in to take its hold.” These lyrics made me think of lots and lots of things! A sunny and cosy week of december! Alexa T

  5. “So cherish for now each warm sunny day,

    As they skip on the breeze and fade away.”

    My favorite verse. A wonderful image of fall fading.
