Welcome to Open Link Night! Mish here, filling in for lovely Lillian.

It’s time to post ONE poem of your choice to share with your fellow poets. There is no specific prompt or theme, so go ahead, let your poetic muse run free. Mine has been rather silent these days as I grieve a great loss.  However,  I am very grateful for poetry – that loyal friend that sits patiently waiting, always available to channel those emotions we may be unable to express in other ways.

Sometimes it is simply the words of poets that speak for us, reflecting our own hearts. These two poems resonate for me. I added a few photos from my area as we welcome a new season. Walking and the beauty of nature has also been very therapeutic.


Nothing Gold Can Stay

by Robert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf’s a flower;

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day

Nothing gold can stay.

Autumn Rain
By D.H. Lawrence


The plane leaves
fall black and wet
on the lawn;

the cloud sheaves
in heaven’s fields set
droop and are drawn

in falling seeds of rain;
the seed of heaven
on my face

falling — I hear again
like echoes even
that softly pace

heaven’s muffled floor …
