Poems on Fall (Autumn)

Radhika loves writing poems. She can scribble some spontaneously, whereas some of them are weaved with much care and thought.

Trees bearing colorful leaves during fall

Trees bearing colorful leaves during fall


The cool air chilled my heart

this morning;

The golden leaves stunned my eyes

this morning;

The sun woke me up late

this morning;

The summer receded me silent

this morning;


Falling leaves circled my legs

this noon;

Crisp cherries filled my hands

this noon;

Harvest songs knocked my ears

this noon;

Fall arrived with colors

this noon;

Scroll to Continue


Twilight glazed the colors

this evening;

Breeze blew the fallen leaves

this evening;

Misty clouds hid the sun

this evening;

Twilight seen for short

this evening;


The moon grew large and orange

this night;

The moonlight silvered the trees

this night;

The moon stayed for long

this night;

The fall delighted my dreams

this night;

Autumn/fall season in Iran


I witnessed fall/autumn season so closely when I was in Iran. I had to stay there for about one year during my husband’s official tour. His office was in Shiraz and we got an apartment somewhere nearby. Iran is a land of poets and painters who are multifariously talented. The great poets Omar Khayyam, Ferdowsi and Hafez were from Iran who contributed their literary works to the Persian literature. The famous Indian poets Mirza Galib and Amir Khusrow also had their roots in Persia whose tender poems on love still make waves everywhere.

During those days in Iran, we had a getaway to Sepidan in October month. Fall season was blooming then. Sepidan is a natural spot of multitude colors, gorges, rocky forest hills and greenery scattered here and there. The gateway to Sepidan was a trail of tall pine trees on a row on either side with golden yellow leaves that created a rich and warm welcome to us. This view is still pondering me and inspiring me to write another poem. Mild cool air and gentle breeze also added to the climate.

Fall/autumn leaves

Fall/autumn leaves


Yellow touches green leaves when fall is in

Red brushes yellow leaves when crops are reaped

Orange strikes red leaves when fall is full

Earth calls red leaves when fall is

out;


Trees can no more bear the leaves

and shred them that would fall down

that sob, cry at the boughs of trees

that had carried and loved them once;


Trees are surrounded by fallen leaves

they are neither fed nor cared

some are blown up by the wind

some die on the heart of earth;


Birds mourn at this silent sight

In fond memories of the past

when they were petted and pampered

by these soft-hearted buried leaves!!




About autumn/fall

Autumn/fall symbolizes prosperity and gay. This season brightens minds with its cool, modest climate. Trees get thickly set with fruits and fields bear grains ready to crop. In villages, people sing songs of harvest. Moreover, the transition of colors in leaves from yellow to orange gives a wonderful visual treat and people go out to natural spots to enjoy the beauty of nature. Autumn is also associated with Halloween. The television, film, book, costume, home decoration, and confectionery product promotions are closely related to this holiday. This starts from early September till the end of October, since their themes rapidly lose hold once the holiday ends.
