“To Autumn”

Autumn, you bring solace born
of cooing as we mourn.
You bring muted, painted sky.
Gray-blue were his eyes.
Sweet Autumn’s leaf
Oh, purple grief
hear my call, companion
for his sleep.

Apostrophe:  A Poem which is directly addressed to a person or thing (often absent). An example is Wordsworth’s sonnet Milton which begins: ‘Milton! thou shouldst be living at this hour’.  Other examples of apostrophe include A Supermarket in California by Allen Ginsberg (addressed to Walt Whitman).
