I feel the autumn breezes briskly blow
Reminding me of what is on the way
The trees are shedding leaves before the snow
As much as I would have the summer stay
I recognize that it is at an end
But I’ll not fret, the days are not yet grey
There still is much this season can yet lend
High flying kites and weekend barbeques
Warm day and then cool nights a perfect blend
Our joys and sorrows build upon our views
Embrace the season’s virtues, don’t be slow
For if we don’t there is so much to lose
The winter spring and summer, even fall
If we but look have blessings for us all
A while back, I was thinking of the traditional sonnet forms and considering if there might be a different way to write a sonnet. This is my attempt at writing a sonnet according to the form that I came up with (ABA,BCB,CDC,DAD,EE). I hope you enjoyed!
