Colored Hue

Colors of Fall

 

Colored Hue

(A Minute Poem)

.

The Autumn leaves in colored hue,

All coming through

For you to view,

As people do.

.
Wrought iron gates or cobbled walk,

If they could talk,

They would but sing.

A wondrous thing!

.
Colors of purple, bronze, and gold,

It must be told,

Upon the ground,

Delights abound!

.

.

Autumn is coming. I can’t wait to see the glorious color hues again.
