Autumn Leaves

An Arbor of Autumn

 Mary Ellen South
September 19 , 2013

An arbor of autumn
Hung high above me
As I drove briskly along the Shenandoah
Myself aglow from the glory of seeing old friends.

An arbor of autumn
With just a hint of color
No full glory yet
Promises of so much more to come.

I journey back each fall and spring
My favorite times of the year
Autumn with its burst of color
Spring with its promise of continuation.

An arbor of autumn
Hung high above me
Creating a sense of security
Reminding me full color awaits us all.
