Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

Sing To Me, Autumn

Sing To Me, Autumn


By Patricia L. Cisco




Sing to me, Autumn, with the rustle of your leaves.
Breathe on me your spicy scents that flow within your breeze.

Dance with me, Autumn, your waltz that bends the boughs of trees.
Now tell me all the secrets you've whispered to the seas.

Sleep with me, Autumn, beneath your starlit skies.
Let your yellow harvest moon shimmer in our eyes.

Kiss me, Autumn, with your enchanting spellbound ways
That changes all you touch into crimson golden days.

Love me, Autumn, and behold this love so true
That I'll be waiting faithfully each year to be with you.

  2. Wow, Peter. What a delightful poem you wrote and then matching the lines to the leaves. I am so impressed. A generous gift.

    OK so you didn't write it. It's still lovely and new to me. thanks for sharing it.

  3. What a sweet poem and beautiful photos to accompany it! Autumn has been singing a drumming song lately, drumming on the roof with rain.

  5. Oh yes, at long last, an Autumn love song. It's beautiful. The Ginkgo tri-color leafs are very cool. Is that a persimmon in the last photo? In your garden?

    1. Yes! My persimmon tree is producing nicely this year and it looks like I'll actually get to eat the fruit! Last year by this time, the squirrels or some other varmints had eaten all of the fruit while it was still green.
