Autumn Leaves #Spokane #Poetry #Autumn #Fall

I know it isn’t quite fall yet, but today was so cool and somehow Autumn like that it inspired me to share a favorite poem with you.

Autumn Leaves

by Frankie Valinda Ghee

 

My memories are leaves

Red and yellow, orange and brown

That lie upon the autumn ground

My grandeur and despair

 

I reminisce through these

Piled so deeply in my mind

Hide the truth and keep me blind

As I wander unaware

 

I fear a chilling breeze

That will blow the leaves away

And force my soul to stay

With the corpses buried there
