Poetry Friday: Autumn by Emily Dickinson

October 8th, 2020 (05:46 pm)
okay

Current Mood: okay
Current Song: Good Day Bad Day by Elohim

The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.

- Autumn by Emily Dickinson

Dickinson is brilliant!

Emily sure knows her way around a metaphor:
"The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown"
Thanks for sharing her autumn brilliance. :)
