An Autumn Scene

Phalen Autumn

An Autumn Scene
(Blank Verse)
.
.
.

I’m thinking lovely thoughts of fall,

Complete with color red on leaves

Still hung on young new maple trees.

.
As willows gauntly weep with wind,

They wait while geese pick summer seed,

their bellies full from dormant grass.

.
Alive in crisp brisk autumn air

, They’re out there where once picnics were,

To get them set for flying south.

.
Oh, such sweet season’s rich tableau,

This smart sight, silently is sought,

For view by poet’s passive eye.

.

Author Notes

This pastoral fall scene spoke to me of the leaves changing and geese getting ready to fly south.


This poem is a Blank Verse.
A blank verse poem is written without rhymes. It does have a set metrical pattern, usually iambic pentameter. But it is a flexible form that is often used in narrative and dramatic poetry. It was popularized by William Shakespeare.
