Have you wandered through autumnal glades?
Have you marvelled at those russet shades?
Have you seen autumn colours painted on the leaves?
Have you beheld beauty cascading from the trees?
and have you felt beauty's sweet melody sing?
warm wonder welling up within
were you thrilled at such a sight?
did it fill you with delight?
and did you yearn that such feelings might last
longing that this pleasance might endure
But such feelings fade too fast
and I could only hope it will not be long before my eyes see such scenes again
