Not so much funny as it is clever (I hope)…

but still a poem!

Autumn Falls

By Donna Earnhardt

Autumn breathes, she flies and flutters.

Whispering the songs of old

Shedding tears for sister Summer,

Tears of purple, bronze and gold.



Rivers shimmer in Fall’s sunshine

Rivers shiver in her arms

Soon they’ll rest ‘neath frozen blankets

Lulled to sleep by Autumn’s charms



Flowers sigh and trees go silent

Vibrant hues and beauties pale

Autumn calms their fear and trembling

As she weaves a winter’s tale



Finally, Fall’s voice is silenced

Still her heart beats ever strong

Sighing, snuggling under cover

Waiting for her wake-up song
