Do not compare me to a summers day,
I'm an autumn baby, with fallen leaves,
Printed in gold and amber across my skin,
With the deepest red sunset lips,
Offset by snowy skin.
I am the crisp breath of wind,
On oxygen starved lungs.
Forget the call of the heat,
And fall into my mist embrace.
. I was born to the frost covered leaves.

Not only is this a clever take on an old cliche, but the imagery is among the most beautiful I've ever read. Bravo. :clap:

Simply beautiful. I love the Shakespearean allusions, the metaphors, the similes, and the essence of autumn found within.
