Spotlight Poetry – Autumn – A poem by Amy Lowell

The image depicts a painting titled Foliages in purple, blue, pink, mauve and violet by the artist Fabienne Monestier, . The work is a semi-abstract expressionist atmospheric painting that captures the romantic beauty of nature's autumnal foliage with its flowing natural forms. The soft colour palette used is made up of various purple, blue, indigo, pink, mauve, violet, blue violet hues. The foliage acts as purely decorative ornamentation across the whole composition. The spraying on of paints creates a blurring effect within the artwork. The backlighting infuses the work with a surreal dreamlike quality.

Autumn by Amy Lowell

All day I have watched the purple vine leaves
Fall into the water.

And now in the moonlight they still fall,
But each leaf is fringed with silver.

Autumn by Amy Lowell 

They brought me a quilled, yellow dahlia,
Opulent, flaunting.

Round gold
Flung out of a pale green stalk.
Round, ripe gold
Of maturity,

Meticulously frilled and flaming,
A fire-ball of proclamation:
Fecundity decked in staring yellow
For all the world to see.

They brought a quilled, yellow dahlia,
To me who am barren
Shall I send it to you,
You who have taken with you

All I once possessed?

Autumn by T. E. Hulme

A touch of cold in the Autumn night—
I walked abroad,

And saw the ruddy moon lean over a hedge
Like a red-faced farmer.
I did not stop to speak, but nodded,
And round about were the wistful stars

With white faces like town children.
