Autumn twilight

This very evening I did spy

a lemon sliver in the sky:

the moon affixed above the trees,

above the stillness of the breeze.

There were no clouds to mar the sight,

there was a coolness to the night.

I knew at once what I must do:

I'd write these words to share with you

the wondrous vision which my eyes

beheld tonight in Autumn skies.

And now you see that it is true:

this is the poem I wrote for you.

The beauty of it all...

"There is a harmony in Autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the Summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been."

--Percy Bysshe Shelley
