Autumn Waltz

He crept up behind her,

carried her away,

her beauty blew him into full swing,

a dance of waltz was underway


They whirled above towns,

and were the envy of eyes.

her dress of scarlet, fancied in awe,

display of elegance, graced the skies


Night fell, beneath harvest moon,
he became winded to an abrupt halt,

dropping her off in river's bed,

guess this dance is over...all his fault

Christine, I think that this is one of the most beautiful and original poems I've read so far about autumn. This goes into my library.

Autumn was never a good dancer, it didn't like to face the music and dance, Jack Frost otherwise....haven't you see people doing the little tap dance waiting for the morning bus?

Better late than never, Christine, it has been a tough day for me. Yep. blame it on the "him's" of this world. You can never go wrong there, at least if you believe the daytime talk shows, and I do. don't you? Doesn't everyone? Just kidding, but I do blame that Cantankerous Old Wind for dropping pretty Miss Leaf into the river bed. That's worse than "put out or get out." I think.

Lovely. Great imagery!

I can only guess how Walt Disney would have projected this romantic scene on the big screen.

"...all his fault." Remember, fellas, there's no substitute for a great finish!

Beautiful tale of Autumn!! I love how the breeze picked up the vibrant red leaf and carried her away in a waltz. Lovely imagery with your cleverly crafted words. Really enjoyed it.
