Poetry

COLORS

Butterflies
Bobbing a-
'Bout the flower
Beds

Lavender
Lizards
Lying a-
'Lone on the
Lawn

Red
Roses
Rioting a-
'Round the
Rotunda

1982


OCTOBER

Sounds crunching, crisp
Smells smoke, fermentation
Feels as warm as brown
Exciting as red
Taste air mellow as wine.

Elusive time
Appearing
Disappearing
Between summer
and winter--October

1979


AUTUMN

Azure sky, golden air
Smell smoke and fermentation
Taste mellow wine
Feel warm yellow and gold
Hear crisp crunching
Experience the elusive season
Appearing and disappearing
Between summer and winter.
Autumn

1978

Nice idea to start the verse with the same words on the first poem, but i'd suggest you to not write one-word verses.
