Default Autumn Anthems ?

Fall Leaves

The brighter they are
the faster they fail.

The higher they are
the farther they fall.

The fewer they are
the faster they fall.

The darker they are
the fiercer they flame.

This Time of Year

Fall leaves. Frost comes.
The Road Not Taken's traffic hums.

Exactly so, Julie,

What’s a fall without a Frost,
his road to take when we are lost?

And

When frost is on the pumpkin
the kin of pump are ripenin’.

&

When frost is on the punkin
the kin of pun are punnin'.

Leaves falling
are appalling.
I can't muster
cheer for bluster.
Birds depart,
it breaks my heart.
Summer ceases,
joy decreases.
Daylight shrinks.
Autumn stinks.

The Conspiracy: Illuminati Illumination

This one is true that Keats let fall:
The reason Sol has gone AWAL
Is he conspired with Autumn, yes!
If just to offer sunlight less;
Both are successful in their mission,
And form with clouds a coalition.

Mr. Killjoy


I have to hear such high-flown praise for Autumn,
Heights on heights pile to lengthen my rock-bottom.

Rogerbob -
night shrinks? Distance tells.
On this side of the pond,
it swells.

No, they're not in the style of anyone famous. Yet.

Stein Stutter

A leaf is a leaf is a leaf
of a tree of a tree of a tree
where there is no there.
