Autumn Chores

A Poem By Lucy Anne // 11/11/2014

Lunge
Slide
Join

I lunge towards those red and gold--
The corpses of those leaves so old
As I lunge, my pink shoe peeks
Playing peek-a-boo with spiky green.

I slide and pull those sticky leaves
Off the mattress of spiky green
Crunching, crackling towards me
Still I glide ‘till a pile I see.

They join together; for I am told:
For as boy meets girl; red meets gold.
Swish-tish, swish-tish – ah, that sound!
Surely soon, will they all become one.

And as I continue to sweep,
With thoughts my mind also sweeps
Of how my God made all these--
Millions and millions - with ease.

This is lovely! Such a happy rhythm. I could have done without the bolding of the words, but overall this was very nicely constructed. :)

In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths

I just love that ''red and gold'' picture in my mind :)

thank you

Thank you for both of your enthusiasm!
With the "boy meets girl" part, it just came into my head, and I was laughing (and still am) about putting that in. I don't exactly know the exact meaning of "boy meets girl" - it could mean different things, but I loved how it matched with the three syllables.

Thank you, Maddi, for always commenting on my work. Whenever I post, I think of certain people, and you are definitely one of them. It's so good to have a consistent reader who will comment. I should ask you about your birthday surprise...but somewhere else...
