Patterned Socks – A Poem

Fall colored leaves, stars on the tundra’s curb:

If branches were sages; leaves their proverbs;

Leaflets oracles proclaiming their ring lineage

Etched in the waters of their striated foliage.

Perhaps, fall leaves are nature’s patterned socks,

A kindness nature weaves from the season’s fabric,

Grounding our affections in warm quilted garbs

As trees elevate perennial raiment to the superb.

  1. (Perhaps, fall leaves are nature’s patterned socks,)

    Surely, oh yes indeed, what person , who?
    whoever whispered the crafty detailed designs of fall? –
    Bare trees on the tundra curb
    Intricate bright and colourful fallen leaves
    Conjures and brings to mind quilts
    Wooly patterns for cold feet when winter calls-
    Knows the skills of an Autumn fall.
