DANCING AUTUMN: AN ETHEREE

Leaves,
Scarlet
And yellow
And near purple
In autumn flurry
Spin like helicopters
Twirl through the streaking sunlight
Pirouette like ballerinas
On Mother Nature’s beautiful stage—
A final performance before winter.

PLAYFUL SPRING: A KYRIELLE

The Spring sunshine caresses earth
Like a lover. It is the birth
Of green shoots and buds on the trees—
They rustle, kissed by playful breeze.

The chirping birds are such a treat
The grass is moist on my bare feet
The wind plays music on the trees—
They rustle, kissed by playful breeze.

Blue sky above me smiles to see
The new-born Spring surrounding me—
A crown of green leaves on the trees,
They rustle, kissed by playful breeze.

Murmuring brooks laugh in the sun
It seems they’re having so much fun
While running through the shade of trees
That rustle, kissed by playful breeze.

— Emory D. Jones
