Autumn's Wind

O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being.
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
Are driven like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing.

~Percy Bysshe Shelley~

  1. WOW! Where do you find these great pictures? Love this one and the poem!

  2. Hi wicKED

    Thank you, I'm happy you enjoy the poems and pics i sometimes post. As to your question, I just type in key words to go with the poems. In this instance it was Autumn trees and wind. This was one of the pics that came up. It has a "enchanting" feel to it.

    Have a great weekend, V.

  3. I just got done raking, and I wish the wind would have driven the leaves away "like ghosts". :) I like that last part of the poem. That's a beautiful Autumn picture too!

  11. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    I recently put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please email me: Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:

    I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you'd prefer.
