autumn wonder

by Linda M. Crate

i love autumn and all
her colors
splashing life in a
too oft devoid of
light and laughter,
her chorus of leaves will
dance with me
in the wings of the
and she never scaled me
in judgment like summer
of freezes me
in winter's coldest
of buries me beneath
flowers that make me feel
she is perfect
in all her laughter
a season
of apples, pumpkins,
and explosion
of giggles
psalmed in the
limbs of
she kissed me
with wonder
and draws me out
into the woods—
i find only animals
but there are
times i find pieces of
myself that i forgot
when the world ridiculed
me years ago.
