Colorado

This poem comes from Autumn Leaves:

Beautiful Colorado,

I offer you this salutation:

Your lofty grandeur and cold, clear streams

Have captured my admiration.

I’ve watches you each year, changing apparel

Through different seasons,

Each more beautiful than a melody,

And I’m enraptured for these reasons.

Your flowered aspen meadows turn green,

Then to red and gold;

In summer, your lofty mountains are bareheaded,

Yet white-capped in winter’s cold.

Quiet beauty of your secret places

Are in the eyes of the beholder,

Changes with the seasons,

Like colored pictures in a folder.

When first my eyes beheld you,

I knew from the start,

I was chained by your beauty

Like a horse harnessed to a cart.

About wfosterwelborn

I was born in a small town in southern Mississippi, but I have traveled the world and completed a career in the U.S. Air Force. I am always exploring and learning new things. From the time I was a young man, I always had the desire to write. With my writing, I want the reader to know that I wish to light a candle in the darkness and hopefully enable others to enjoy life more.

  1. I believe what you said made a great deal of sense. However,
    what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier post title?

    I am not suggesting your information isn’t good., however what if you added a post title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean Colorado | wfosterwelborn is kinda vanilla.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how
    they write post headlines to get viewers to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion,
    it might bring your blog a little livelier.
