A poem reflecting on the beauty of an evening in the fall

Autumn Night

Silver light on the autumn trees

Fills their leaves with ice

While gentle breezes all round

Blow their leaves to the sky


Stars paint the blackened night

Stealing the breath of moon

She stays behind the softened clouds

To hide her envious swoon


Crickets play their gentle song

The night is their time

And the weeping willow swings her boughs

To join in their rhyme


A pair of lovers walk hand in hand

Enjoying their heart's romance

They wish this night would last forever

And their love stay in its trance


Another song steals the sky

This no ear can hear

For the moon retreats to horizon's edge

As sun will soon appear


Pinks, reds, and blues

Fill the softening sky

Silence is heard all around

As night whispers good bye


As fast as the darkness came

It was tucked away by the dawn

Forcing me to wait the morrow

For the night of which I am fond
