Thanks to the 1st: Autumn

Today I'd like to welcome Tatyana Varenko the author of Ordeal to Thanks to the 1st!


Autumn has come in its numerous faces.
Bright summer green will be changed very soon
Turning to yellow with brownish traces,
Smeared with orange, red, scarlet, maroon.

Coolness replacing the heat is refreshing.
What a relief when the sun doesn’t burn!
Woods dressed in color look vivid and dashing
With their residents full of concern.

Stocking for winter to come is ongoing
Both in the human and animal worlds
Harvest is ripe which is autumn bestowing
For all the animals, people and birds.
Then at the end of the month of October
We celebrate Halloween as a treat.
Yet, days get gloomier, shorter, and somber;
Rains bring all colorful leaves to your feet.

Beauty of autumn is clearly fading
Precipitations bring dampness and cold
Waiting for winter to come soon pervading
What used to be in the autumn’s firm hold.

About Tatyana:
This time my birth as human being
Took place in 1982,
In June, when weather was appealing
And sparkling with the morning dew.

As I grew up, too shy by nature,
My friends were Pushkin, Dante, Wilde
Who wrote of love and of adventure -
I dreamt of the vampire kind.

As time went by, I took to versing
When I got hardly over ten,
And life was constantly coercing
Me to compose and use my pen.

The Foreign Languages Department
I joined in 1999
Served as a very good incitement
For my verse writing to refine.

Then the first sketches were laid out,
When I was drawing to 18,
Ordeal began to come about
To lighten up my dull routine.
