“Autumn Song” by Monty Edwards



Sing a song of autumn leaves

Dancing on a gentle breeze:

Twisting, turning, left and right,

Disappearing out of sight:

Some with partners, some alone,

Destinations quite unknown,

But once gathered in a heap.

Those left breathless fall asleep.

  1. Glad you liked it, Celia. I was bemused by your cryptic comment, but on rereading the poem had a flash of insight, not from my experience with cryptic crosswords, but further back to kindergarten days and “Sing a song of sixpence”. Hope that helps anyone else left wondering about the “sixpence”, which some Aussie children may not have even heard of!
