Seven Reasons I Love Autumn

I am participating in the Writer's Tribe Festival of Words from September 1st to 7th.

Write Tribe

Each day we bloggers participating will write something with the theme of seven.

Since it's September 1st and thoughts naturally drift to Autumn, I wrote a poem about seven reasons that I love this season.


I love autumn for many reasons
It is my favourite of all the seasons,
Muggy summer days slowly slip away
The leaves are glorious in their display,
Harvest is here with fresh veggies and fruit
I join my groups to sing and play flute,
The air is cool and crisp and clear
It’s like the start of a brand new year,
School starts again and a new routine
Autumn is a blank page, fresh and clean.

  2. Such a sweet, poem. We don't have a 'proper' autumn in India, Cat. But for me autumn is associated with all I've read and heard....Those falling leaves drift by my window...comes to mind! :)

  10. Autmn is such a bright season, not so much for the sunlight but more for all that it represents. The end of an era and start of another...
