Whispers of Autumn: Poetry In Celebration of Leaves
Welcome to our page of poetic enchantment dedicated to the humble leaves! From the vibrant hues of autumn to the crisp greens of summer, we have a range of poems that explore the beauty of these often overlooked natural wonders. And who said leaves were just for trees? Our poets have found inspiration in leaves that flutter in the wind, fall underfoot and even those that crumble under the weight of time. So, sit back, relax, and indulge in some leafy literary goodness. Don’t worry, we won’t judge if you feel the sudden urge to frolic in a pile of leaves after reading!
1. “Autumn’s Farewell”
Leaves rustling in the wind,
As autumn comes to an end.
Their colors fading, soon to be gone,
A quiet beauty, their final song.
2. “Green Abundance”
Leaves sprout from slender stems,
A green abundance, a forest gem.
Dancing in the breeze, they sway,
A verdant wonder on display.
3. “Winter’s Coat”
Leaves disappear, the trees laid bare,
Winter’s chill, the frosty air.
But among the branches, you can see,
A few brave leaves, clinging to the tree.
4. “Spring Awakening”
Buds bursting with vibrant hues,
Leaves unfurl, a springtime muse.
New life, a fresh start, a vision so bright,
Nature’s poetry, a wondrous sight.
1. Autumn Leaves
Each leaf turns from green to gold
As the chill of autumn takes hold
Falling softly to the ground
Creating a carpet all around
The trees stand bare against the sky
Their branches reaching up so high
A symphony of rustling sound
As leaves gather on the ground
The beauty of this season brings
A sense of wonder, in everything
As nature prepares for its winter rest
Leaves will return, at springtime’s best
2. Living Leaves
A tiny sapling in the earth
Pushes upward with all its worth
And from its stem, a leaf unfurls
A symbol of life, in a beautiful swirl
The sun and rain become its friend
As its tiny veins, begin to extend
Its mission to take in the light
Making sugars, in its own right
The leaf will grow, as seasons change
Its color and shape, will rearrange
It will give shade to all down below
Then fall to the ground, where it will go
3. Goodbye Leaves
The wind begins to blow so hard
Ripping leaves, from their guard
Flying all around in the air
Colorful spectacles, everywhere
The sky looks empty, oh so bleak
As trees now seem barren and weak
A silence descends, in a somber way
It’s time for leaves, to fade away
But do not fret, good friends of mine
Summer will come in its due time
And from the ground, new leaves will grow
Once again, Mother Earth will show.
Leaves of Life
Leaves fluttering in the breeze
Dancing with the sun’s playful tease
A symphony of colors on display
Yellow, orange, red, brown, and gray
Each leaf a unique creation
A masterpiece of nature’s formation
Symbolizing the changing of the season
A time for introspection and reflection
Leaves that once were rich and green
Now turn brittle, ready to be seen
Falling to the ground as they die
Their beauty remains, never to shy
They crunch underfoot as we walk
Their rustling sound, has us in awe
The taste of autumn is in the air
Leaves, they remind us to prepare
Winter is on its way, that we know
But now it’s time to enjoy life’s glow
The sunsets, the fires, the autumn wear
Leaves of life, they make it so rare
Nature’s annual cycle on repeat
New leaves in spring, with the earth’s heartbeat
Then summer’s bounty, giving and true
Autumn’s romance, with evenings anew
And so, as leaves fall today
Let’s take time to watch, listen, and play
With nature’s force, the essence of life
Leaves of change, living with strife.
