The falling leaves

By Mavis
It was raining heavily we were sitting in the Butter Market eating soup . I looked at the dripping cherry tree with leaves of red & gold , thought it might make a picture so here you are . I put up my hood & braved the deluge . Nothing on the table today but Falling Leaves .

The falling leaves
Drift by my window
The falling leaves
Of red and gold

I see your lips
The summer kisses
The sunburned hands
I used to hold

Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I'll hear
Old winter's song

But I miss you most of all
My darling
When autumn leaves
Start to fall

What wonderful colours, Mavis! Smile I've been out a couple of times recently (the last time was on Thursday), but most of the trees around here still seem to have green leaves - all the colourful ones are on the ground! Sad

Beautiful image Mavis. I love the way the colours of the leaves stand out against the grey background. Lovely poem too. Hope you are keeping well.

Loving the autumn colours captured against the otherwise monochrome background.
