Ah, the autumn wind
And the whispering
Burnished leaves
Will be gone
And in their place
Will be a chill
And a note
Stating that love
Was only borrowed
So sweet a memory
Should not have been
So Dark a night
I wished would end
Before it had begun
When you told me
That your love
Was lost
I felt colder
Than a graveyard stone
But even though
I loved in vain
Still, I've no remorse
For it is better
To have loved
And lost
Then not to have known
Your love was all

I love these lines":

And in their place
Will be a chill
And a note

The title brought me in, to an oblique sadness that ends...thankfully.

Hello Ron,

I agree with the others this is very well done and the flow is almost perfect. I say almost perfect because of the punctuation that is inserted into the poem. The two that you have seem to hold up the progression of the poem. If they were removed the reader would then choose to pause when a breath is needed or when they feel a pause is required. In this way you give the reader total control. ALso the one after "still" really seemed out of place. I see this is included in a book and congrats on the publication. Take what I say and either trash or keep it, just my humble opinion. I liked this and those are really small nits. Keep up the good work. I look forward to reading more.
