Sunset Rest

SUNSET - R. L. DRIESLEIN - USFWS
Sunset:
Tomorrow waits.
The problems of today
Are forced into submission while
I rest.

My Heart Belongs To Autumn

Exif JPEG

Leaf by tender leaf,
I watch this stately monarch
Dressing up for fall.

Gold, russet, yellow,
And brilliant red — her choices,
For she loves them all.

Hour by passing hour
The change begins subdued – but
Then bursts into flame.

I revel in the site.
My heart belongs to Autumn.
It’s joy calls my name.

The troubles that have pressed
Throughout the year now ending,
Though they’re present still,

Are restrained by the power
Of Autumn’s golden glory
To subdue all ill.

My heart belongs to Autumn.
Indeed, it always will.
