Tis The Season To Decorate

Tis The Season to Decorate 

Decorate the world, 
with russet leaves 
that swirl in a colder breeze, 
Jump in a mound of crispy vegetation 
that carpets our nation. 

Decorate the night, 
crisp, cold, starry, ones 
 and burning, woody fires, 
Huddle round its flames, 
See in your mind eye what transpires 

Decor is all around 
Colours all to be found 
In our autumnal spell,
before our winter 
and the peek of the first bluebell. 

Submitted to :In Tandem whose picture was the prompt 


  1. It is coming soon. My girlies love raking leaves & jumping into the piles. We have not quite hit that point, but they were valiantly trying to scrape together a pile yesterday afternoon. Thank you for sharing this lovely poem.

  2. I'm looking forward to the colder breeze - it's been to muggy here recently! Than you for hopping on the Tandem and adding to the leaf pile of poetry.♥
