A Touch of the Poet: Autumn Offering

I shall be Autumn
this Halloween,
with leaf draped skirt,
and folds of
boysenberry velvet wine
flowing to the ground.

Brown stained face,
eyes rimmed in gold,
nails dripping sunset,
a crown of twigs
to cover my head.

You may gather from me
the spring of my youth,
my summer of maturity,
and hold onto with me,
the solace of these days
of remembering
before the frost.

Judith Lawrence

    “the solace of these days of remembering” – is such a beautiful way to explain the poignancy of the season.

    What a splendid costume that would really make. Are you going to any Halloween dress-up parties?

      Not I, but if I were going to a party, I would LOVE to dress as this young lady is. Just beautiful. November is such a poignant month anyway, I did like Lawrence’s poem a lot. Glad you did too!
