Autumn Arrival

a poem by Joseph Chukwudiegwu Osita, Nigeria

The stained glass fragile face of the blue sky
Gently whispers the arrival of shorter days.
As boring laziness of summer days kiss the earth goodbye
Bright sun artistically paint the day with chill rays
Beneath the merriment of yellow and red colors of sycamore leaves
Perfumes of the stealing autumn arrest my keen nostrils
As busy-laden squirrels hustle nuts with belief,
Mine eyes are fed with everlasting thrills
Soon, the sentry poplars shall undress to yield wind request
And dance naked before the scented daylight
Their ripped fruits dangling like damsel's breasts
Shall kiss the bright-yellow lips of sunlight
Then, autumn has cursed the earth with her chill wand
And all shall dance her drumming band
