Ode to Autumn – a quadrille


Today Lillian at dVerse Poets asks us for a quadrille based on “the 10th most beautiful word in the English language was identified as tranquility. So – that’s the word for today’s Quadrille. You must include the word tranquility, or a form of the word, in a poem of exactly 44 words, sans title.” Quite a challenge – I’m game how about you?

Ode to Autumn – a Quadrille

the sky shines bright and blue
leaves dance on gentle breezes
tranquility abounds
like the precious golds
and softer browns

too soon will come the cold nights
and the depth of winter slumber
but today with autumn’s
gentle kiss
we say goodbye to summer

Word count 44

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP
