Spring and Autumn This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Spring things are beautiful:
Petals, crimson and ocher,
And arrogant boulders radiant
With moss and loneliness,
The ocean, spacious and frail,
Sauntering, but smooth
Aroused by the striding sea gulls
Who screech at the genteel fish.

And autumn things are beautiful:
Leaves, supple and earthy,
That whisk unnoticed from their home,
And squirrels gathering food,
Foxes that chase marble geese
From their cozy, foxy pups.
The rainbow from a
Stormy night polishing the ancient sun.

OMG! I really enjoyed the poem. ( I know you probably hear this alot...) I love the imagery you create. I REALLY like the last line. It satisfies, but also leaves you hungry for more!!!

I feel like this could have used something to tie the spring stanza and the fall stanza together. The imagery, however, is absolutely stunning.

This was beautifully written. You gave your imagery so perfectly I felt I was in Spring, then Autumn, in a matter of two seconds. Wonderful vocabulary.
