Autumn Prairie

Tree and Grass

Whatever comes to cool the air
And make the greenless leaves descend
And make the clouds seem strange up there
I welcome as a smiling friend
Who tucks the prairie in to sleep
And offers dreams for it to keep.


Linked to dVerse Poetics. Kim of Writing in North Norfolk host with the request to write about “one autumnal item”. My item is a photo, “Tree and Grass”, I took last autumn that represents for me the prairie in autumn.

    1. I used to see one better on our farm in Indiana, but now I live in an urban environment. That scene was from a forest preserve/park area which had an open area and oak groves. I haven’t read Wilder’s books, but from what I’ve heard she would describe an environment similar to that park. Thanks, Robbie!

  1. the prairie is so vast, your capture of the subtle change of season is very tender. with dreams incorporated into a poem that speaks to me of homecoming and traditions. those leaves had to fall from the branches. for with a heavy burden they couldn’t weather the winter snow.
