AUTUMN
Autumn in the woodland, brown upon the heath,
A tang of frost is in the air, it's time of falling leaf.
Crimson red the sunset,down behind the hill
Dusk is quickly gathering and all the woods are still.

This was written a very long time ago by the father of a friend.

There was this fellow called Pat
Who liked his political chat.
While bored stuck at home,
He dug out a poem
And sighed when the response was too flat.

I think it's a nice little verse P. But the 2nd line is over-long and doesn't flow IMHO. As to whether a poetry magazine should publish it, you'd be as well to ask if a record label should sign a given band. It's unanswerable. The pace reminds me of this: The Fairies - Allingham


Patslatt1 sought to double his fun
throwing some verse at the site
but it fell kind of flat
and what's far worse than that
Is that all the reactions were shite.
