My poetry sisters and I agreed to write a poem in hymn meter this month (think almost anything by Emily Dickinson, or Amazing Grace, or the Theme to Gilligan's Island, or the Yellow Rose of Texas). Here is mine.
I have a secret, said the Fall,
that nobody may know.
I whisper it through rustling leaves
that fall before the snow.
I know that it appears as if
death comes to growing things.
The truth is they are just asleep
and will awake in spring.
