I only felt autumn's presence
In October, in Hamburg
A month after she was expected

Crisp leaves, warm light
Geese on the lawn by the lake
And loneliness
Stretching through short days and long nights
Heralds of winter's coming

Shoes worn thin by miles
I wander, a stranger, mute
Head full, heart singing
The love of dark trunks and bright leaves
Untempered by geography
Or language
Autumn has finally arrived. Winter will soon follow.

EDIT: Thank you all so much for the favourites and comments on this piece. I was utterly shocked to receive a DD after pootling along in the dA universe fairly anonymously for so many years. A special thank you to Lili for recommending it for DD-dom. Amazing love to that girl.

Hmm I always want to say what exactly I like about poems but it's very difficult, it's all associative and about the feelings it evokes, a poem probably means something different to every person...

Aw, this so reminds me of the autumn walks I took around the Bramfeld lake near the flat I had in Hamburg.
The light was gorgeous, and I rarely heard so many different birds singing, different ones each season.

This is gorgeous!

I really like the opposites you have in the line: Crisp leaves, warm light, it's pretty fitting considering I get the feeling of the narrator being someone who is lonely and sort of caught between two different things. I'm not sure why, but you explore opposites again later in the line: The love of dark trunks and bright leaves.

It's a really lovely little piece. :) Great work!

Your comments are always so sweet - thank you. I think autumn is a season of change, and of contrasts. Even the contrast between day and night becomes much more pronounced as autumn progresses, particularly the further north you are. If I've captured that I'm glad.
