Autumn Leaves

Hi, it’s the first of October, where has the summer gone?? For my poem I have taken the prompt from Ragtag which is very appropriate for the season, ‘Red and Yellow’, it is called, ‘Autumn Leaves’, thanks for looking.

I was born and live in rural North Wales (UK) and found poetry again after a lifetime, so grateful I did :)

    1. Dear Angela,

      Hello! I concur with Ken. All in all, I am impressed and like your rhyming poetry, in which you have excelled. Since I have been composing mainly rhyming poems, often with end rhymes, internal rhymes, alliterations, assonances, consonances, sibilances as well as rhythmic devices, syllabic schemes, musical patterns, and other subtle or overt features, I naturally notice and gravitate to such features. Hence, I have many good reasons to like your poems.

      In particular, your excellent poem entitled ‘Autumn Leaves’ is very evocative and reminds me of the 1945 popular French song “Les feuilles mortes” (literally “The Dead Leaves”) sung by Edith Piaf and Yves Montand with music by Joseph Kosma and lyrics by poet Jacques Prévert, and later translated into English as “Autumn Leaves” by the American songwriter Johnny Mercer in 1947.

      Happy autumn and Happy October to both you and Ken! Speaking of autumn, I have recently published a very culturally significant post entitled “🌕🎴 Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節): Moon Celebration 🌅🎑🏮🎐🥮🈷️”, available at

      The said post also contains poems.

      Wishing you and Ken a wonderfully productive October doing, enjoying or blogging whatever that satisfies you the most, including writing more poems for us!

      Yours sincerely,
