Translucent Autumn

          Translucent Autumn

Green summer season’s age of growth is passed,
Each leaf of us has given as was meant,
Each tree, its fruit and beauty rightly spent,
And shadows larger now than shadows cast,
The heat of middle age has cooled its flame,
Our youths like birds have left their summer nests,
The stars and moon much longer stay as guests.
Our former summer growth lies still and tame,
Like leaves, we now are notes of autumn’s songs
That sing and shine in colors bright and bold,
Translucent orange, red, and yellow-gold,
We praise in hallowed light where praise belongs,
   Like autumn colors, soon we come to be
   The lights and songs of our eternity.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
