    Wow, Mr Long. Autumn is certainly a popular topic among the nature-loving poets, but I have never read one that is this sensual and this clever. Who knew that trees could be such a turn-on, eh?

    Great stuff.

    She blows a kiss to summer
    Who collects his beach ball
    And heads for home.

    Lovely personification and lovely poem :-)

    I can't pick one favorite stanza, I loved them all. This painted the beautiful picture of the intense beauty of Autumn. This was a very captivating poem, truly a masterpiece. I will add this to my favorites, so I will have quick reference to it often. As weird as it may seem, it paints a sensual, strong, taboo feeling of the changing of the seasons, everything we may have perceived about the season was re-written with elegance. Absolutely Amazing. 5/5
