Of love and autumn red

Spread the love

Oh soft, the dying autumn day
I thought, as rushed the earnest wind
reminding me of songs that gushed
from the heart.

A thousand times when scarlet leaves
drop, I fall and gaze upon the clear
blue sky, utter your name and let out
a deep-drawn sigh.

And I ask myself there is so much
and yet what more can there possibly be
left to say, you’re the sun as ever shining
and sometimes twilight grey.

I watch as further down a blue wren
cleaves its way.

  7. The addition of the blue wren provides a colourful contrast as well as an unexpected note but one in keeping for the wren sings as if to burst its heart.

      Thank you so much, Laura 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

      PS: That’s a wonderful interpretation!❤️

  8. I like the use of internal rhyme in this poem, Sanaa, for example in:
    ‘…as rushed the earnest wind
    reminding me of songs that gushed’
    and
    ‘…I fall and gaze upon the clear
    blue sky, utter your name and let out
    a deep-drawn sigh’.
    I agree with Laura about the blue wren.

    I watch as further down a blue wren
    cleaves its way.
