Autumn Dresses For All Hallows’ Eve



Winds of Autumn rash and free

Send leaves ascatter  as they rush

To a privet hedge lying in the lee 

It’s naked boughs now dressed in lush

And borrowed hues of crimson gold and rusty

Brown of errant castoffs from lofty brush

And taller brethren too involved in windy

Tussles to worry the loss of minor tress

Costuming the privet  in  hurly burly

Reminiscent of mummers in patchwork dress

Fit for parading on All Hallows’ Eve

Autumn is my favorite season for its delightful colors and comfortable cool temps. Your portrait captures its beauty with so much texture. Very enjoyable read, thanks.

Well done, Joe. Our hedges haven't yet turned, and they don't collect leaves as you've described. Too bad.

This is so great work!!!Love the use of words.Wish i could think and write like you!!!
