"A Romantic Walk" by Max Pietschmann‘Summer’s Fall’ by Luke Hahn The Society December 8, 2020 Beauty, Poetry 3 Comments Oh, the joy of summer’s fall, Tripping on her tassels tall, Laughing with such deep release The ombre maples blush. How she twirls through apple trees– Such a brief, chromatic breeze That the blitheness of her pall Outdoes the spring-ing thrush. Luke Hahn is a freshman at Concordia University Wisconsin. He is in their pre-seminary program, specifically as a theological languages major. Last year he won SCP’s high school poetry contest.

Reply Leo Zoutewelle December 8, 2020 Well done, Luke! Reply C.B. Anderson December 9, 2020 I looked up “ombre” and found that it was a card game popular in past centuries. What the hell do you mean there? Is it that leaves are somehow like the cards in a short deck? As for the rest of the poem, I find it inchoate at best, though Sally Cook is correct in pointing out the “nice” images you generated. But beyond the images, does this poem have any rational content?
