Autumn’s Hum

Bee Tree by P. D. Laine

“Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,

We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!” 

― Humbert Wolfe

Autumn’s color now magnified by the melodic hum
of nesting birds and honeybees preparing their winter homes.

And when exquisite graceful leaves fall and come drifting down
painting a canvas of brilliant hues upon the cooling ground,

The beetles and slithering worms get busy, doing their life’s work
Breaking down the rotting leaves, returning them to Mother Earth
as we watch in awe the miraculous circle of life, death, and rebirth.

  1. You’ve put autumn under the microscope, Linda, and given us a realistic but beautiful picture. I love ‘Autumn’s color now magnified by the melodic hum’ and the busyness of the beetles and worms.
