Leaves and Limbs

Leaves and Limbs

(A Modified Rondell)



Leaves and limbs blaze beautifully
In neon colors bright as sun
The trees aglow in autumn’s show
Means summer’s sweetest time is done

It beckons me to climb aloft
To see it like the birds and squirrels
Enveloped in all Nature’s charms
When breezes make those tree-top swirls
Leaves and limbs

As sunlight filters golden leaves
Where eagles often make their nest
This curtain over gnarled bark
Is very truly heaven blessed
Leaves and limbs


Author Notes
When I was out and about, enjoying the autumn leaves, I took this close-up picture of a tree that was in stunning yellow color. I thought this gives a perfect perspective such as a bird or squirel might have.

This poem is similar to a Rondell, in that it repeated part of the first line, but I didn’t actually follow its line format of rhyme scheme.
It has a rhyme scheme of: abcb abcbR abcbR.
