October 


October

by Robert Frost (1874-1963)    

.        
O hushed October morning mild,

Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;

To-morrow’s wind, if it be wild,

Should waste them all.

The crows above the forest call.

To-morrow they may form and go.

O hushed October morning mild,

Begin the hours of this day slow,

Make the day seem to us less brief.

Hearts not averse to being beguiled, 

Beguile us in the way you know;

Release one leaf at break of day;

At noon release another leaf;

One from our trees, one far a

way;

Retard the sun with gentle mist;

Enchant the land with amethyst.

Slow, slow!

For the grapes’ sake, if they were all,

Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,

Whose clustered fruit must else be lost—

For the grapes’ sake along the wall.

my humble attempt in the form of a tanka for the above poetry “October ” , by Robert Frost . 

.
o autumn 

let your golden leaves fall

one by one , slowly .

for grapes would moan 

while still unpicked .

melting into the sea

the full moon

leaves a candle bright

my attempt :

melting into the sea

the full moon

leaves a candle bright

                   ~~~

vast sea shines bright 

ceaseless mass of liquid gold .
