Magpie Tale #35-It's Fall

I wonder 
If I could ignore
The call of Fall,
Upon the golden sip
of equivocation
In her jubilant fashion,
I ponder
If I could explore
the reasons of the season
upon the fancy trip
of summer vocation.
It's Fall,
Leaves desert trees
and hit the floor;
It's Fall,
Kids grit their teeth
As SUMMER slaps shut her door.

This is an entry for Magpie Tale #35.
Happy Writing, Happy Reading!

I like the way you pictures summer slamming her door so that fall could arrive. And I wish I could write poetry like you do. :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

GardenofDaisies said...

And I also wish I could type! I need a computer that lets me talk instead of type the comments. I truly do use good grammar, even though that last comment would lead you to believe otherwise.

I just love the last line! I adore winter sun and would easily slam summer's door and try the handle just to make sure......It's true though - kids hate the end of summer.......

Great Magpie, Ji ... and I visualize it all ... and leaves falling like the illustration ... and kids gritting because school is starting and summer fun is at an end. Fine work. Thanks! Saturday smiles ...

gospelwriter said...

I love the idea of ignoring the call of fall - sometimes would be nice, or at least to delay it a bit. I like your poem very much, there's a freshness about it...

what a nice way to say goodbye to summer time! Thanks for your comment on my Magpie!! Baseball is one of my passions and I couldn't help thinking of the Post-Season with the prompt.

Kids grit their teeth--and how! Great magpie. Thank you!

P.S. How does one contact you?

RNSANE said...

This one is really great and I can, indeed, see the youngsters cringe as school bells ring and they are drawn back inside, away from the thrills of summmer.

Hi Jingle. Lovely flow. I was tired tonight so rather than focus on meaning I simply enjoyed the words as they slipped off my tongue.

You left a message on my blog about "poets Rally week 30"

Tell me more.
