Autumn Hope . . . a poem














Autumn Hope

by Ryan M. Roberts

Autumn leaves flame out as they make their descent 

through the cool harvest air.

Their brilliant colors wane under foot;

    broken and crushed into the darkening earth below.

Yet even in death they yield a harvest.

Hidden in winter depths, their embers glow;


    fueling hope,

expectant for the spark of new life.


- Isaiah 55:8-9 -

So beautiful - reminds me of Henry Van Dyke's poem "Autumn in the Garden".

Thanks for reading and for mentioning Henry Van Dyke. I had never heard of him, but I like his poem, "Autumn in the Garden," and will read more of his work.
