Ode to the Autumn Lord
by Anden Jade
Age Group: Adult
The Forest Lord is growing old.
His beard is starting to fade;
the wisps of gold, now pale wheat,
were once bright as flame.
He walks among the withered stalks
of a harvest full and past,
while amber leaves scatter behind
the prints his boots have cast.
He wraps a scarf around his neck
and shakes his antlers fair
when he sees his lover, maid and mother,
silently standing there.
She spreads her arms, and to him she says,
“Come home to my warm hearth,
for you have traveled long and with you,
I’ll share the bounty of the earth.”
He nods with pride, and with glittering eyes,
he takes her hand in his.
Together they walk through the dying wood
with the chill of the wind’s kiss.
