Leaf Fell Upon.

see the love,
leaf fell upon the dusk;
children whistle (a little whistle in rain)
and the shudders of grass
none more blithe than any guesses,
but, must seem upon the miles away. away.
dust and dusk surmise,
ends are all bested before
nightly and I might, nightly tide,
ordering oneself to sleep and soon.

    Ooooh I really like this one! The imagery is so pretty and it’s easy to find a story from my mind that can fit the scene, whilst I feel someone else’s story is written under the words as well, mingled into every line. It’s so pretty, great job!

      Aww, thank you Gabby. I’m so glad you like this. To me, with how I wrote it, it’s a simple poem that describes a scenery and it’s the sort of connection that can reach everyone differently. I visualized this as scenery in the fall and describing it; I just love the autumn and the color of leaves. There can be different themes within each line (and the more I read this poem back, I see themes I haven’t even thought of), and it’s just how it connects to others. Thank you for your feedback and I’m happy you enjoyed reading this. 🙂

        Wow, thats such a beautiful meaning and theme of the piece! Me too, especially Autumns up North, the falling leaves and wispy air creates such a magical scene! Thank you for sharing the meaning with me, it definitely enlightens the poem and allows me to see it from a different perspective now! 🙂
