Lines from Autumn Poems Prompts:
1. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness
2. Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun
3. Conspiring with him how to load and bless
4. With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run
5. To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees
6. And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core
7. To swell the gourd
8. and plump the hazel shells With a sweet kernel
9. to set budding more, and still more, later flowers for the bees
10. Until they think warm days will never cease
11. For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells
12. Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
13. Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find Thee sitting careless on a granary floor
14. Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind
15. Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep
16. Drows’d with the fume of poppies
17. while thy hook Spares the next swath
18. and all its twined flowers
19. And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep Steady thy laden head across a brook
20. Or by a cyder-press
21. with patient look
22. Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours
23. Where are the songs of Spring?
24. Ay, where are they?
25. Think not of them
26. thou hast thy music too
27. While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day
28. And touch the stubble plains with rosy hue
29. Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
30. Among the river shallows
31. borne aloft
32. Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies
33. And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn
34. Hedge-crickets sing
35. and now with treble soft
36. The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft
37. And gathering swallows twitter in the skies
38. Autumn is like an old book
39. Marred spines turn mean yellow
40. staples rust red-orange
41. Every stained page is stressed by a splat of color
42. Rough-red
43. like an old tavern
44. we become hungry birds and prepare for fall
45. Shape and shadow are candied citron
46. as lanterns turn bitter yellow
47. Autumn is a red fox
48. a goblet filled with dark wine
49. a hot chilli pepper with smoky eyes
50. Pressed leaves take in the colors of seafood paella and saffron
51. these leaves are like death
52. climaxing with a smile
53. Autumn: Her dress is a net of mussels, dark shelled
54. it covers up summer’s weatherbeaten body
55. So pull out your boots
56. .and stand on an aged, wood floor
57. like an evergreen
58. I shall be Autumn
59. this Halloween,
60. with leaf draped skirt
61. and folds of boysenberry velvet wine
62. flowing to the ground
63. Brown stained face
64. eyes rimmed in gold
65. nails dripping sunset
66. a crown of twigs to cover my head
67. You may gather from me
68. the spring of my youth
69. my summer of maturity
70. and hold onto with me
71. the solace of these days
72. of remembering
73. before the frost


Lines from Christmas, Solstice and Winter Songs and Poems Prompts.
1. A cold coming we had of it
2. Just the worst time of the year for a journey
3. and such a long journey
4. The ways deep and the weather sharp
5. The very dead of winter
6. And the camels galled, sore-footed, refractory
7. Lying down in the melting snow
8. There were times we regretted
9. The summer palaces on slopes
10. the terraces
11. and the silken girls bringing sherbet
12. Then the camel men cursing and grumbling
13. and running away
14. and wanting their liquor and women
15. and the night-fires going out
16. and the lack of shelters
17. and the cities hostile
18. and the towns unfriendly
19. and the villages dirty
20. and charging high prices
21. a hard time we had of it
22. at the end we preferred to travel all night
23. sleeping in snatches
24. With the voices singing in our ears
25. saying that this was all folly
26. Then at dawn we came down to a temperate valley
27. wet, below the snow line
28. smelling of vegetation
29. With a running stream
30. and a water-mill beating the darkness
31. and three trees on the low sky
32. And an old white horse galloped away in the meadow
33. Then we came to a tavern
34. with vine-leaves over the lintel
35. Six hands at an open door dicing for pieces of silver
36. And feet kicking the empty wine-skins
37. But there was no information
38. and so we continued
39. and arrived at evening
40. not a moment too soon
41. Finding the place
42. it was (you may say) satisfactory
43. All this was a long time ago, I remember
44. and I would do it again
45. but set down this set down this
46. were we led all that way for Birth or Death?
47. There was a Birth, certainly
48. We had evidence and no doubt
49. I had seen birth and death
50. But had thought they were different
51. this Birth was hard and bitter agony for us
52. like Death, our death
53. We returned to our places
54. these Kingdoms
55. But no longer at ease here
56. in the old dispensation
57. With an alien people clutching their gods
58. I should be glad of another death
59. I have news for you
60. The stag bells
61. winter snows
62. summer has gone
63. wind high and cold
64. the sun low, short its course
65. The sea running high
66. Deep red the bracken
67. its shape lost
68. The wild goose has raised its accustomed cry
69. cold has seized the birds’ wings
70. season of ice
71. With solstice here we’ll celebrate
72. This sacred time
73. and have much cheer
74. We will bring warmth
75. and we’ll bring light
76. unto the darkest time of year
77. The mistletoe will be cut down
78. With sickle from the sacred tree
79. A kiss I’ll give to you my love
80. A pledge of friendship made to thee
81. For greater than the will of man
82. or want of that which can be done
83. It fall and shines on where we stand
84. Beneath the great unconquered sun
85. For this is now our turning point
86. The shortest day, the longest night
87. We’ll look unto the months to come
88. When the sun will grow both strong and bright
89. A vessel crown
90. all decked with green
91. That tell’s of winter’s tales and mirth
92. Will bring great gladness and much joy
93. To all who walk upon this earth
94. The servants and the lords alike
95. And masters they will feast with slaves
96. And give them freedom they desire
97. Set thief and scoundrel free this day
98. With candles, dolls and gifts of fruit
99. And blackened faces
100. through the street
101. We’ll praise good fortune
102. raise our cups
103. And drink a toast
104. To kind and queen
105. We’ll burn the lamps
106. to ward away the spirits
107. in the halls of those whose house all be decked with boughs
108. Where evergreen and laurel grows
109. The earth’s white crust
110. where it lay down
111. Does bow the oaken branch
112. to fall
113. ’tis soltice now
114. account ye sins
115. repent ye
116. beggars one and all
