Visions of The fall by M.A.Meddings

Visions of the fall

By M.A.Meddings


The trees in my homeland are so beautiful just now
Especially so at this time of the year
Yet fall, the enchanted season, has barely begun


In the hedge rows, down the lane, along the Ridgeway
Smells of ripening fruits, drift on the breeze to awaken me
The trees in my homeland are so beautiful just now


Then in the late sun of afternoon, I see her reflection
In the limpid stream, such a beautiful dream but heartache
Yet fall, the enchanted season, has barely begun


And in November rain, face set hard against the wind,
I feel the warmth of her kindness embracing me and
The trees in my homeland are so beautiful just now


There'll be six feet of snow at Combe come Christmas
Best cut the holly whilst we can, see it in the sky?
Yet fall, the enchanted season, has barely begun


And as I watch the Greylag geese heading south
I think of you in another world, another time so raptured
The trees in my homeland are so beautiful just now
Yet fall, the enchanted season, has barely begun

You have a gift, pure and simple, for touching me, and yet I know you touch many more. Reading this is like listening to a beautiful romantic movement. I am caught up and swept away in its sound, its flow, its purpose. Thanks for posting this. : ) kathy
